Roman Kharkovsky is one of the premier producers of drone and electronica music in the world. The electronic composer’s legacy though filled with mystery is spiritual at its core. A few weeks ago, I had the blessed opportunity of reviewing the Rituals album by Roman Kharkovsky himself. Kharkovsky approaches his craft like an oil painter, thereby using the essences of synthesized sounds as colors overlapping across the canvas that we call life. Kharkovsky’s work is soothing to the ear and worthy enough to be in an art gallery of melody. Early in June 2018, Kharkovsky released a masterful work entitled, RH-Red Stars trance Ritus between Dnieper river and Lviv.
Kharkovsky often masks his genius behind the depth of his music. Listening to RH-Red Stars trance Ritus between Dnieper river and Lviv led me to the understanding that this groundbreaking composition is in fact a message that Kharkovsky received from the stars in epiphany. Different from other drone music tracks produced by Kharkovsky, RH-Red Stars trance Ritus between Dnieper river and Lviv dances to a much brighter tone. The track is easy to follow with a theme of ascension that can be read through sound.
RH-Red Stars trance Ritus between Dnieper river and Lviv is a keyboard-heavy track that invites listeners to witness these celestial affairs of the mind in broad daylight. The composition opens with a mechanized flute, which leads into a dialogue between the keyboards and certain sound effects with repeating patterns. Visually, we are afloat and can see the womb of nature in heaven as something that we find ourselves being kin to one another. RH-Red Stars trance Ritus between Dnieper river and Lviv by Roman Kharkovsky is a healing experience that is administered audibly and in the spirit of intelligence. Bravo!
