First Dream Called Ocean 9. The Toy Garden 10. Sons of Light and Darkness 11. Emancipation. I was put at a blissful ease and began to drift away on good memories from the past. I later found every song from Eingya to be amazing.
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience, is not a quote you will find in this album because it is instrumental, however it invokes the same feeling of peace as you willingly drown in its breathtaking essence. Listed as organic electronic/ambience, these are terms unfamiliar to me, but I am certainly allowing the music to prove itself as such.
Listening to this while waking in the rain was quite pleasant, and the cover art is wholesome and fits the tone of the album well. Really relaxing ambient music.
Since Helios' Eingya is the third full-length by Boston-based composer Keith Kenniff, and the second from the same alias (Corduroy Road was released under the name Goldmund), you can't accuse him of not being serious about his work. Nor can you call him a dilettante or moonlighter: He's a Berklee College of Music grad who's served time since childhood in music lessons administered by a musically-inclined father (instead of playing outside or whatever), and his accomplishment and expertise on various instruments is gratifyingly apparent on all three of his releases. This was the lone spot on the album that didn't try to move me along to the next, which I appreciated.
