Italy’s digital ambiance mastermind b o d y l i n e showcases a rare ability to distill notes in his electronic music production style. Where others choose to go for more bombastic or simply higher-energy pieces, he knows exactly how to bring the tempo right down to that delicious, texture-filled space where the moment-to-moment sounds create a blissful, floaty experience. Time becomes irrelevant, only the smoothness of the beat and the beauty of the arrangements remain. Computer Imagina is a triumph of the unassuming, an album that will reward those who pay attention and let their minds wander.

Italy’s digital ambiance mastermind b o d y l i n e showcases a rare ability to distill notes in his electronic music production style. Where others choose to go for more bombastic or simply higher-energy pieces, he knows exactly how to bring the tempo right down to that delicious, texture-filled space where the moment-to-moment sounds create a blissful, floaty experience. Time becomes irrelevant, only the smoothness of the beat and the beauty of the arrangements remain. Computer Imagina is a triumph of the unassuming, an album that will reward those who pay attention and let their minds wander.

It all begins with Computer Tide, where the softness of the music to come is made fully evident. The soothing synth stabs driving the track and the super-slow percussion would not be out of place in the outro of some 90s TV show. Temple and Evening Wind continue the minimalist trend with different iterations of the relaxing mood found in the opening cut. Pacific Maps brings a bit more oomph into the mix with a fuller percussion and synth combo, as if the sound philosophy itself got larger with every minute of the record’s playtime. Memory Recall‘s fantastic saxophone and vocals mixture pays for most of the entrance fee alone, making it a clear highlight and a must-hear for those jazzy, calming vibes. Night Visual is another great example of this stylistic approach. Finally, Echo Vision proves a worthy closer with a tremendous intro flowing into some of the best texture work heard throughout.

We all need calm, introspective moments from time to time, and music can be a great way to channel that intention. Computer Imagina‘s success stems from this perspective where the state of flow is all that matters. A perfect album for study sessions or talking to a friend with a glass of wine, it’s the kind of record that gets played on very specific situations, but when it does, few can match its striking atmosphere and laser-focused intentionalitty.
