Vidna Obmana: Soundtrack for the Aquarium Review

by Matt Borghi

Originally recorded in 1992 for continuous playback at the Antwerp Zoo, Vidna Obmana's Soundtrack for the Aquarium opens with an austere, deep droning, underwater ambience. The work has been re-released in 2001 on the Hypnos Recordings label, along with a second CD which includes a live performance of the Soundtrack for the Aquarium recorded in Hamburg, Germany, in 1993. Both of the discs in this package are beautifully sonorous. The provocative and comforting atmospheres that Obmana has created with Soundtrack for the Aquarium are deeply resonant and tranquilly serene. This two-disc set is absolutely fantastic. It's quite possibly some of Obmana's best work and it's representative of the drone ambient side of his work. Fans of Robert Rich and Steve Roach will love this excellent recording. This long out of print work is sure to be a classic with ambient music fans, but it's also a great starting point in Vidna Obmana's large body of work.
