[Review] Daniel Biro – Synthrospections 4 – Hell Is Empty

Daniel Biro is a keyboard player, producer, improvisor, songwriter, member of the bands Echo Engine and Mysteries Of The Revolution. On November 21, 2021 he published the fourth chapter “Synthrospections 4-Hell Is Empty” with which he offers us another journey inside the keyboard sounds. Intermant instrumental and improvised, without adding sounds after recording, it is a record that explores the world of experimentation. With Ambient and Experimental references, these over 30 minutes of mixing and layering keyboard sounds are definitely not easy to approach. A listen for lovers of Atmospheric sounds, with very dilated melodies that revolve around prolonged notes and the exploration of the sounds of the keyboards listed by the artist on the cover. An album for keyboard sound purists, focused only on sound sequences by Moog, electric piano and various types of keyboards. The entirely improvised realization phase is interesting without any written composition before execution, with a minimum of work to improve the quality of the product but without adding layers or sounds in post-production. In this series of albums, the artist experiments that surely those who are attracted by Experimental keyboard sounds will find interesting ideas.
