INTO THE LIQUID UNKNOWN by Paul Ellis is a bright and distinctive piece of modern electronic music. Those of you who are more interested in true e-music — shifting synthesizer patterns, beautiful resonances, expressions of the soul of the machine — will delight in this fantastic, fresh recording.

Using a dash of classic ‘European style e-music ‘ as a reference point, Ellis takes the listener on a thematic exploration of the ocean’s depths using pulsing arpeggios, cascading mechanistic sequences, lilting melodic passages, and gradually to brief interludes as the vehicle, and utilizing  just the right limited measure of ‘classic e-music ‘ before moving on to create something new.
