Being a fan of post rock and ambient music, I was instantly drawn to David Walters’ work under the recording alias of the Echelon Effect. He utilizes layers of instruments and vocal samples to create a soaring, sweeping, and altogether gorgeous atmosphere of sounds. What he demonstrates across Seasons Part 1 is a knack for soothing music that doesn’t just lull you to sleep. He builds you up and eases you into smooth progressions that might leave you day-dreaming and inspired as you listen along.
