With their acclaimed ambient/electronic music project Time Being, veteran spacemusic maestros Phillip Wilkerson and Jourdan Laik have been exploring the expansive sonic realms of atmospheric soundscapes for the better part of a decade. On their third album, An Ocean Of Time, the duo are in top form as they venture into over 70 minutes of deep-drifting, time-melting, soul-stirring bliss that hovers delicately at the fringes of darkness and light.
Vast and immersive, the album’s fathomless spaces evoke a sense of ageless infinity. The sublime combination of synthesizers, electronics, spacial effects, and subtle swarms of orchestral wonder coalesce into a boundless auditory expanse where time is forgotten. Hints of cello and violin drift upon an open sea of textural ambience where slow-motion waves rise and fall in an infinite cadence of tranquility. Occasionally, pulsing electronics or melodic illusions come into focus, momentarily suspended in atmospheric space before gradually dissolving back into the ineffable void.
Are we in the cosmos or is the cosmos in us? With soundscapes as expansive as the mind will allow, Phillip Wilkerson and Jourdan Laik musically ponder this question in an attempt to touch a perfect heart of awareness, presence, infinity, and the essence of being. The immersive ambient soundworlds that unfold throughout An Ocean Of Time foster a thought-provoking, introspective, deeply serene state of mind where linear time falls away to reveal the eternal now – one moment swirling in the endless ether of infinity...here, now, always.
