The collaborative efforts of Viennese-trained classical musician Gareth Koch & ambient music specialist Martin Kennedy endear a very profound and idiosyncratic soundscape as evident from their latest adventure titled Music In The Afterlife. This spirited 10-track journey recalls not only a memory of the soul, but the psyche’s journey after it has left the body.
Koch and Kennedy speak to this vast human mystery, which has been a trigger in the minds of ancient and modern people, through a sonic terrain of exotic instrumentation that borders the realms of both classical and electronic music. The compositions are exceptional demonstrations of musical theory and capture the heart and mind with an elegant new age outlook. Music In The Afterlife is a mirror into why we are here and is a catalyst appreciating life’s value.
