New Illuminated Void Album! The Vesper Serpent
The Vesper Serpent is the second album from Illuminated Void, a dark ambient project by Matthew Schmitz steeped in esoteric and spiritual motifs. The Vesper Serpent is a singular track juxtaposed with both deep abyssal movements and neo-classical and folk passages which evoke a sense of mystery and of an obscure space which exists between waking and dreaming, between this world and another. Melodies and arrangements were chosen that explicitly manifested a synesthesiatic quality, evoking colors, shapes, and even picturesque twilight environments within the mind of the listener. The Vesper Serpent is an album not for the casual music collector, but for those who actively seek to connect to some other reality through the energetic exchange brought about by sound.
