Passage is an elegantly crafted insight into the alienation of transition, a single from experimental artist Raffael Seyfried. He composes in layers, dancing between the comfort of acoustic sound and the more abstract synthesized mood-spectrum with his infamous piano and modular setup. The emergent haunting melodies evoke the journey into the unknown, and the foreign feelings that come with it. Seyfried is careful and calculated in his expressions of emotion, finding a balance between perfect and imperfect to emulate human experience. He is able to design a cosmic ambient soundscape that is epic and cinematic, while still somehow a quiet and introspective piece. Find this post-rock chillwave-esque masterpiece here:
