'Dear Avalanche'   

-  Label: 'Deep Elm Records'
-  Genre: 'Ambient' -  Release Date: '20th January 2017'

Our Rating:
Despite employing a ten piece choir all the tunes on this album are wordless in what is described as "the ultimate symmetry of music and emotion".

This is Christoffer Franzen's fourth album as Lights & Motion and as with his previous releases, the Swedish composer plays all the instruments and the work is self produced.

Franzen packs a lot into the 14 relatively short tunes. The fact that nothing is longer than five minutes allows a nice ebb and flow of textures and moods which are all very much part of the same imaginary movie.

Silver Lining is every bit as celebratory as the second part of Sigur Ròs' Festival while a tune like All The Way builds more slowly.

One track is called Everest, a fitting name since many of the pieces conjure up visions of epic landscapes

Furthermore, the title of the closing track We Only Have Forever serves to highlight the artist's philosophy that, at least from a sonic perspective, the possibilities are endless
