Christopher Alvarado = Silentwatcher + Wired to Follow

A well-crafted soundscape album, Creation by Inertia showcases a serene expedition through space and time. It’s droney, ambient and true to the experimental genre. There is a decent amount of movement incorporated, especially in “Genesis”—it’s a fluid piece, luscious and rich in emotion.

I have a lot of respect for the way in which Alvarado draws out human emotion using technological machinery—it would make a great tool for meditation or trip guiding. Although I don’t typically go out of my way to track down an album to use strictly for atmospheric noise, I enjoyed zoning out and immersing myself in this album. –Kamryn Feigel
