THE BLACK ORCHID GALAXIES is the 15th studio album by outer-dimension-exploring Australian ambient artist deepspace and his third release on Projekt Records. The recording inhabits an electronic space music sound, simultaneously dark and light with flecks of red-purple and orange inside a dream-like cosmos. Fire-laced and opalescent synths bubble quietly and divide then settle atop distant light-filled synth shrouds. Droning space guitars decorate, encircle and propel a hypersonic musical mosaic of sound cathedrals. Fluctuating between hypnotic explorations of sonic nebulae and vast sounds that threaten to break up on atmospheric entry, this is the most glimmering and wide-screen deepspace album to date. It is part contemporary ambient, part Jarre, while also partly cinematic — think sci-fi movies Silent Running and 2001: A Space Odyssey.



Exposé Online - Deepspace is back. Already again. It seems like just last month I was writing about his latest independent release The Architecture of Flowers, but now with The Black Orchid Galaxies he’s back with the Projekt label, a sprawling fifteen track, 78-minute kaleidoscopic swirl of powerful, heady ambient sounds and wild mysterious turns that drift across the heavens with shimmering beauty. This is the fifteenth release by Australian anbient artist Deepspace (a.k.a. Mirko Ruckels), and his third solo release for Projekt Records. While the album at hand is entirely instrumental, it can be seen as the journey of a scout ship “The Garden Orb” as it journeys through a previously unmapped cluster of dwarf galaxies on a mission seeking habitable areas for a newly expanding Earth civilization. Using an expanded sonic palette of dreamy synthesizers, droning space guitars, sequencers, and occasional percussives, the sounds at hand encompass everything imaginable in a vast widescreen panorama of auditory bliss. There is stillness, sonic acceleration, powerful meteor showers, deep bends and twists in the space-time continuum and more as the protagonists find their way through an endless world of ambient translucence and the far reaches of shimmering colorful worlds. The tracks range from as short as a couple minutes (“UnsettlingData” and “Recreational Space Couch”) to as long as a full album side (“Travelling Vast Distances”) and all points in between. Most interesting, and perhaps disorienting, are those where the entire soundworld changes pitch slowly — it happens like that on several cuts, it’s a somewhat alarming feeling but eventually everything levels out and one is back in equilibrium again. Beautiful sounds abound everywhere, The Black Orchid Galaxies is by far the most engaging of Deepspace’s Projekt releases to date. - Peter Thelen
