This album is deceptive...in a good way. You could call it 'subversive'. Mainly ambient, and often without steady drums and such, you might expect it to be like a lot of 'wallpaper' albums that simply put you to sleep. In contrast, 'Cinematic' creeps up on you when you least expect it. Kubilay Uner obviously has a heart that guides his craft, because there is real, engaging harmony sharing space with the sometimes odd, always interesting, sonic textures he cooks up. A really good chill-out album, but I was surprised to find myself actively LISTENING often, too.
A Sonic Joyride
Kubilay Uner is one of the best of a new breed of talented composers with their finger on the pulse of electronic innovation, and also firmly grounded in the skills of traditional film scoring. A sonic joyride, Cinematic takes the listener on a delicious aural journey. A thoroughly "visual" offering, especially enjoyable in headphones.
Go ahead. Challenge your ears. Try something different. I dare you! You'll be glad you took the dare. This is a unique CD: a welcome, sound-expanding addition to anyone's music collection.
