Igor Ivanov and Sami Blanco’s AT/NU project is half transcendence-focused ambience and half explorative, trance-inspired hybrid techno. Both sides of their cyber-tropic debut “Psi Grove” are situated firmly in the same 3D rendered forest realm, and both share the conscious agenda to “attenuate” the listener’s neuro-vibrational energy through reprocessings of glassy, spaced out tropes of electronica.

Even if the bulk of the album was laid out (in two weeks) at Sami’s loft in Griffintown, Montreal, the digitized, celestial feel of “Psi Grove”’s two sides seems more indebted to the year Igor spent in New Zealand; residual vibrations of bygone outdoor raves, cornerstore “herbal highs” and free spirited cultural moods echo through the breakbeat of “Shift” as much as the textural cosmos of a track like “Tennu”.

Soundscapes like “Dro-gen” and “Nitewavs” are lit with starry, forward-reaching synth drones whereas the Electribe-driven tracks like “Lodi” and its reverberant temple-based sounds suggest the fern-covered landscapes and Pacific energy of New Zealand’s postcolonial atmos.

“Psi Grove”’s synthetic ecosystem focuses towards pluralistic, holistic detachments from narrow perceptions, embracing a wide range of immersions for a unified sensation of displacement and taking cues from Stellar OM Source, Focus Group and Wolfgang Voigt along the way.

Igor’s other project, Window, treaded similar polished, hybridized zones with the atmospheric jungle and techno experiments, while Sami’s series of electronic productions as Temple Volant, Nacomi, Mi Casa Tu Casa are at the more twisted end of electronic exploration.
