This one is a slow burner, requiring time and attention to get into. Quite different from the almost anthemic Etudes: Blue Box featuring the same "instrument". Lots of gorgeous Moody textural stuff here.
Favorite track: Lazulum Part 3.

Lazulum: An epic, long-form work by composer, musician, and sound designer Nathan Moody. Recorded during a time of intense personal and professional change, this recording reflects both fear and excitement using a very limited set of timbral, compositional, and performance options, using a small modular electronic instrument: The Blue Box. Lazulum provides a sense of vast expanses open through simple compositional forms and sound shaping over time. The music conveys both great mass and ethereal vapor by intertwining consonance and dissonance, drone and rhythm, unease and peace.

Oozing cheese cloth and diaphragmatic exercise. Planned parenthood visits with elderly and newborn crystalline gazers at sharp city whiz-bys. Lofty eagle crooks soaking perniciously as the egg hazmats carefully consider their apron soak pattern. Log cabin ego waffles. loudclouds
I was wrong with this album as I didn't buy it at my first listening...... it's as all other albums exactly what you can expect by r beny: beautiful ambient music with his unique style and composition.....great work Austin! 🤗 autark
