Walter Mmari thinks about the world from the far end of the African continent, sitting at his instruments and weaving musical episodes of his imagination.
Returning from his 2021 full-length EP The Time Traveller, Walter Mmari has followed up his discography with two consecutive singles Between Worlds and Into the Afterlife and his latest track Timeless. The two-minute instrumental number is Mmari’s electronic work manifested at some of his best, creating a soundscape that is fictional, immersive, lifelike and interactive.
The opening of the track with the piano arpeggios takes the listener right into a unique intersection of Beethoven and Jesper Kyd-like landscape, gradually being introduced into the vast corners of Mmari’s creation. Gargantuan synth waves wash across the entire track, offering a sense of breath to the electronic pulsation. Characteristically, Timeless borrows some of the most celebrated elements of multiple genres, including post-rock, electronic ambient music and even very strong hints of chamber and arena music. Three singles underway already, Walter Mmari promises the steady build-up of his next musical masterpiece, and as captivated as we are by his music, we sure are here for all of it.
