about

Numbra is an ambient artist collective. Faceless, the second release in this series, features works by composer and multi-instrumentalist, Eric Hausmann.
------

On “II. Faceless” Numbra’s seamlessly blends together ambient, industrial, post-rock and classical into an eerie whole. Full of color these mysterious pieces teem with life. Throughout it all the delicate arrangements play off of each other creating a carefully woven whole. Attention to detail means that the songs possess an otherworldly, almost dreamy quality reminiscent of Max Richter’s patient meticulous work. During its best moments it strikes a careful balance between the nightmarish and outright lovely. Little fragments of environment sounds find their way into the mix giving it a narrative sensibility. Without saying a word Numbra is able to create a compelling all-engrossing piece of work with “II. Faceless”.

This narrative begins with the shy work of “House with the Long Drive”. Tactile, almost dub-like rhythms take hold on the elastic nature of “Cell with a View”. One of the true highlights of the album is the dark beauty of “Murmur” whose melody transforms into something oddly playful towards its latter half as the melody glistens. Spacious in scope is the expansive sounds of “Restraining Order”. Easily the highlight of the album is the beautiful “Anonymous”. Possessing a driving rhythm, the song’s shoegaze results in a soothing, welcoming atmosphere. Claustrophobic in its approach is the haunting “Cold was the Ground”. Bringing the album to a satisfying conclusion is the slow patient build of “Wallpaper Impressions”.

With a truly cinematic flair, Numbra’s “II. Faceless” offers a plethora of mood and stylistic choices pointing to a bright future for classical music’s next evolution.
