The new album of Sleepwalker - "Amenti" approves a private style and incredible sound "Sleepwalker". An ingenious composition elements and inovatory approach create an impressive and rememberable sound picture. A tender blend of low and high acoustic guitar lines with a soaring wordless vocals moving in and out of the background, noble tones of Native American flutes and innovatibe combo of bongos, djembe, doumbek and timbal fits nicely in the New Age, World & Ethnic genres. The orchestration goes beyond the traditional conceptions for a musical background and rather reminds of qualitative soundtrack. As the height of perfection the album is mastered by the Grammy award-winning engineer Bob Katz, Digital Domain Studio (www.digido.com), USA.
Amenti is the second full length album from Bulgarian musician Lyubomir Yordanov, in the interim between albums Sleepwalker also released the single A Tear For Kursk. There is a marked development in both style and production on this latest project - Lyubomir delivers a polished, unique vision that is lifted above the average by his own well crafted compositions as well as by the involvement of so many other skilled contributors. The updated Sleepwalker website is a visual delight with lots to explore, containing plenty of information and sound samples as well as a store should you wish to buy the album. This project has just stepped up to a whole new level.
