Gabriel Saloman – Movement Building Vol. 3
Intensity reigns supreme over the powerful gestures of Gabriel Saloman’s “Movement Building Vol. 3”. Tension fills the air over the course of the album, for Gabriel Saloman create an entire universe out of these gestures. Emotionally the approach runs the gamut from soothing lullabies to intense industrial nightmares. By tying all of this together with an adherence to stellar guitar work, the pieces positively teem with energy. Instrumentally rich, Gabriel Saloman draws from a wide variety of sources, going from outright noise to a post-rock level of tragedy akin to A Silver Mount Zion’s output. Sequenced together with incredible tact, the songs build into an entire journey of sorts.
“What Belongs To Time” offers small gestures at first before the entire piece bursts into color with great passion for its finale. Anxious string work defines the spirited “What Belongs To Bass”. Angels and demons come together on the cryptic “What Belongs To You” where feedback laden guitar adds to the overall visceral quality. Easily the highlight of the album “What Belongs To the March” compels with its fire. Featuring a stellar buildup, the way the song crescendos feels particularly earned. Nicely ending the album the fragile melodies of “What Belongs To Sleep” have an airy, weightless quality to them while they swirl about with such majesty.
“Movement Building Vol. 3” opts for a surreal universe, one whose many pieces come together to deliver a symphony of sorts, a feat few can do with anywhere near Gabriel Saloman’s deft touch.
