Quiet, slow-motion floating minimalism is one of the foundations in the music of Max Corbacho, explored in all of his previous albums. Connecting with that inexhaustible source of inspiration, A Connection to the Wonder reveals even more serene and gracious atmospheric interior spaces. Three long, deep sonic meditations make up Max Corbacho's new installment. Balanced carved resonations and dynamic sonic zones of transmutation, helping us to partake in an experience of beauty and honesty. Through his use of synthesizers and processors, Max's music connects with the magical reality of infinite moments in the present time, as the title states, "A Connection to the Wonder". The album travels on a mystical and revealing pilgrimage through immaterial layers of gracefully expansive synths and magmatic drones, that reach unfathomable depths, ending in a celestial journey of sweeping analog synth layers.
Like all Max's albums, this music is created to be heard as a sound incense background at a low or medium level, but also in a more active way at a higher volume. Either case, the immersive experience is total and unique. A Connection to the Wonder, a sanctuary of tranquility and warm, enveloping positive energy outside of time and space.
In Max words: "Comprised of three signature sonic meditations, the album was born from serene atmospheric synth layers flowing through a source of warm tranquility. This is a place of solace wellness where you can immerse yourself during long listening sessions. Almost all of the tracks on my albums are created as midi sequences on my synthesizers and hardware processors through my mixing console. In the case of this album there is no computer process except in the mastering stage. While I am creating these soundscapes I often lose all contact with the perception of time, everything remains in a long, weightless and sincere moment, untouched by the past or future, only an instant without beginning or end.”
