The Two Towers By Claudio Casanueva

The works of Claudio Casanueva are well known for being lush expansive arrangements of simply idyllic ambient electronic music. On The Two Towers, the latest single by the artist, nothing has changed as Casanueva brings us something almost film score in standard; one could easily see this being used in a movie segment, its vast steady onward procession of a repeating ambient motif is totally encapsulating, one can almost hear the words of English poet Robert Browning as he wrote "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came"

I have always admired the quality of Casanueva’s work and this talent and skill is on full show once more, while listening to it the mind conjures up images of an ever onward trek towards the tower, perhaps through a far reaching and barren wasteland of a desert, the hovering anticipation on synths and keyboards is simply blissful, and should be absolutely adored by the legions of the artists fans and lovers of good music everywhere.
