The simpatico sophomore by the unstoppably prolific Alex Paterson and fellow Orb original Andy Falconer is an epic sail through the sky at night. Helmed by gentle spirits with warmth in their hearts, SETI feels cold and dark, yet also glowing and welcoming. Aboard a cosy candlelit spacecraft, the duo experience the cosmos as somewhere overwhelmingly infinite, yet reassuring and friendly. A sort of ambient unplugged, its full of acoustic instruments and nostalgic samples, folding space between the old world, and places where no man has gone before.The various junctures include a glaciallypaced sublime melody unfurling and Nyabinghi percussion merging with mandolin and acoustic guitar, like Penguin Caf Orchestra weaving around Pat Metheny. Elsewhere theres finely detailed deep ambience, stoner conspiracy, and a continually growing uplifting chuggers anthem. All at once its rootsy and folky electronic and processed minimalist and composerly and not of this world.Initially proclaiming one morning in West Norwood, its just two old blokes doing tunes, after a couple of coffees the good Dr Patterson began to warm up and divulge The first LP had a great reception and sold so well I couldnt even get a copy myself. Andy is brilliant at making ambient music, and working with him is always rewarding. We understand each others brains its easy and organic so doing another made total sense.SETI stands for Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence, but its also something you sit on, to chill out, which is why the album contains a Three Piece Suite. This record is musical ambience, which is what we like to make, rather than drone ambience, which theres a lot of these days.Over email from his studio in Portugal, Falconer adds, the first album The Heavens was very much a reflection of our shared roots, and in many ways saw Alex and I simply picking up where we039d left off 30 years ago with Ultraworld. For SETI, we still wanted to keep a connection to the sound of The Heavens, but to also crack open that musical mould and explore new ground. Part of that aspect was to further expand the use of acoustic instruments in both recognisable and processed form.We039ve always been very much on the same page creatively and one of the great things with working with Alex is that nothing is out of bounds, and we039ve just continued to build on that solid relationship of trust and shared curiosity.
