Boomkat Product Review:
Ambient legend Gier Jenssen goes back to basics on 'Inland Delta', improvising on an arsenal of reconditioned vintage synths and mimicking Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Jean-Michel Jarre.
After masterminding richly conceptual records like 2016's 'Departed Glories' and 2021's 'Angel's Flight', Jenssen revived his love of analog gear on May's 'Shortwave Memories', using old preset-free synths to craft an ode to the early days of post-punk. 'Inland Delta' expands the reach; this time he's used his vintage gear to evoke the kosmische era, mostly improvising and restraining himself with the processes his predecessors likely used. In this way, it feels slightly boxed-in. The tracks meander grandly but refuse to add much in the way of animation.
'Delta Function' splays brassy, sci-fi synths over a lolloping white noise pulse, 'Franklin's Dream' is a moody droner that's almost woken up by plasticky piano sounds, and 'Brownian Motion' is a passive, impromptu concoction that evolves over faint, electrified choirs. Fans of classic synth gear and the raft of secondary private-press reissues from labels like Trunk will no doubt find something to latch onto, but we have to admit - we were expecting a little more.
