Mixing drones and soundscapes, Zero V creates a number of siren songs on Fluidity that shimmer like light reflected on the water’s surface.
The minimalist musician has gained some attention with the piece “Stones”; featured here, it reveals the unhurried and unfolding nature of Zero V’s melodies.
The opening “Fluidity” is the musical equivalent of a meditation session, it’s initially lovely, yet the soothing arrangement saps the piece of its spellbinding effect before long.
The last piece composed here, “Toned,” is also the most uptempo, foreshadowing the warmth and presence that appears on this EP. As with most minimalist works, Fluidity requires patience and open-mindedness on the part of the listener, only more so.
