Astrid Sonne - outside of your lifetime

Astrid Sonne - outside of your lifetime

by Tom Ojendyk

Outside of your lifetime is the third album by the Danish composer and viola player whose background in classical is evident in this 10-track release of nicely harmonic and concise compositions that were rooted as improvisations. Largely instrumental, the music is electronic-based with the addition of keys, strings, guitars, and the choir-like vocals on “Fields of Grass.” There is a wide range of ideas present from the grandiose minimalism of “Moderato” to the joyfully melodic “Mirror Behaviour” but there is also a sense of warmth throughout the release. The pieces are short, work well with each other, and overall is a very gorgeous record.
