Ambient chilled with Mxe Prizmo – Abiogenesis #ambient #glacial #chill

Ooh, it’s turned colder. Autumn is giving way to winter’s onset. Even a bit of ‘red sky in the monring, shepherd’s warning.’ Seems appropriate therefore to have some Russian ambient from Mxe Prizmo. The track is the distinctly glacial and ambient Abiogenesis.

I know nothing about Mxe Prizmo (Maxim Bogotkov) but of the track title I can tell you that Abiogenesis is about the origin of life. More specifically, the natural process by which life arises from non-living matter, such as simple organic compounds. As wiki says “The transition from non-living to living entities was not a single event, but a gradual process of increasing complexity that involved molecular self-replication, self-assembly, autocatalysis and cell membranes.” That’s important muscially as perhaps that’s what the track is driving at. It emerges from a slow underlying drone that gradually builds upon itself. A hugely atmospheric track that gains a touch of string and synth-driven warmth as it goes along and more elements are added. This is all very Biosphere. Even manages inside its chilly exterior to find a little hope for the future. Crystalline.
