Synthesizer sequences and arpeggios give movement to the deep ambient soundscapes, textures, and nuanced melodies.
Between Interval s long awaited fifth studio album, LEGACY, is an exploration into the unknown through excursions into electronica, spacemusic, Berlin school, and elements of dub techno. Ten meticulously crafted journeys offer vignettes of the wonders of the universe as humans observe and experience it - internally and externally.
Between Interval is the alter-ego of Swedish electronic artist Stefan Strand, whose mature signature sound of his past catalog is ever present amid new influences and inspirations of sound expression. Synthesizer sequences and arpeggios give movement to the deep ambient soundscapes, textures, and nuanced melodies, while subharmonic bass pulses wait to be discovered.
Further complimenting the experience, LEGACY is presented with package art by acclaimed visual artist Michal Karcz, helping to suggest a sense of the context to the project without defining too much of the artist s intention for the work. Stand explains, I always want the listeners to make up their own stories and pictures while listening to my music. Hence I really don't want to explain my own thoughts in too much detail, since I don't want to limit or lock in the musical experience in a particular direction. The more imagination spurred from my music, the better. That being said, for me this album is really a journey. Whether it's an inner spiritual journey, a journey through space or to various mysterious locations on our earth, it doesn't really matter - it's up to the listener to decide.
LEGACY is about exploring our future, discovering something new, perhaps finding a space called home. It is also about growing as a spiritual being in the process, a process of constant change, much like life itself.

The gates to "The Tunnel" are unlocked and I am entering into awe-inspiring sonic realms, where warmer laid-back passages impeccably juxtapose with cyber-tech infused magnitudes. Briskly illuminating pulses join the spectacle as well along with gorgeously expansive introspections. Short, but absolutely jaw-dropping intro!!! 4-minute "On Track", slightly longer than its predecessor, attracts with hypnotically cadenced patterns carefully confronted with glimpsing ear-tickling euphoric cascades and relaxed hyper modern ingredients. It's more than evident with "Legacy" Stefan Strand resurrects chillout downtempos from "Radio Silence", but this time he shifts his bravura into a much higher, state of the art plateau of coldly driven electronica, yet exquisitely counterpointed with balmily embracing horizons. It's quite apparent on "Accelerant", which masterfully bridges immensely nuanced drifts with mesmerizingly galvanizing, slightly Berlin School fragranced sequences and unforeseen poetic glimpses. "The Hour Appointed" reveals its deeper drones, organic subtleties, unfathomably echoed metallic tinkles and surreptitiously emerging intangible tribal serenities. Oracular subterranean genius loci is fully awake! The next piece, "Septimal Laws", is immediately ignited by spectacularly high-tech sounding bleeps, pellucidly polished to absolute eargasmic superiority, which are guarded by leisurely undulating curtains. No matter if feeding your headphones or speakers, a reference audiophile sound quality is fully blossoming here!!! "Fields Of Neptune" delves deeper into thrillingly enigmatic terrains, sonorously engulfing, but again glowingly amplified by magnetically pulsing tapestries and backed by gossamery percussive quietudes. Another absolutely phenomenal track!!! "The Outer Shell", clocking to 8:17 mark as the longest track, keeps tightly on the path of intriguing spatial terra incognitas, when fastidiously amalgamating serenely waving reverberant drones with mysteriously impalpable pulsing signals and clandestinely arising astral gleams. "Gravity Core" is fueled with continuously permeating razor-sharp and heavy pounding beats, spellbindingly trancescaping, and surrounded by emanating and evanescing ethereal blankets, reinforced occasionally by ephemeral meridians. Hallucinogenic voices announce "Inner Guidance", but the sonic spectacle is quickly stolen by persistently climaxing and strongly intoxicating sequencer vignettes, while auxiliary cybernetic fragments are riding atop along with ambrosially euphonious panoptic layers. Another superb composition and one of the undisputable pinnacles of "Legacy". "Closing In" is a very short conclusion navigated by desolate dronescapes, which along the way metamorphose into glancing evocative reflections.
Wow!!! "Legacy" is only 51-plus minutes long, I could easily enjoy additional 20-25 minutes, but trust me, this is the only low point found on this album. It's totally triumphant work by Stefan Strand, who certainly didn't loose any of his soundsculpting brilliancy. If someone is able to deliver such staggeringly remarkable recording after 8 years of silence, then he must get my excuse. Stefan, no problem!!! But no, seriously, please, don't let us wait again that long... As already mentioned, once you were a wunderkind for me, now you are a true genius of pristinely blazing ambient cybertronica!!! And by the way, "Legacy" is available also as a vinyl edition (limited to 500 copies), it's Spotted Peccary's first ever vinyl release. So select your preferred format now, because "Legacy" is another milestone by Between Interval and one of the undeniable aural vertexes of 2017!!!
