Subaudition - _The Scope_
(Prophecy / Auerbach Tonträger, 2006)
by: Pedro Azevedo (7 out of 10)
Apparently there is also a project from the UK using the name Subaudition (and they happen to own the domain), so let's clarify things first: this is the Finnish Subaudition. Describing themselves as "acoustic-based emotional flow", Subaudition leave no doubt that their music is a tranquil, atmospheric affair. _The Scope_ is built mostly from acoustic guitar, piano and softly sung male vocals, with a variety of other elements (e.g. saxophone) making their way into the music at various points. The band clearly attaches great value to the less obvious side of music, what remains beneath the aural surface; the atmospheric elements that are woven into the music. The result will therefore depend to some extent on how sensitive to these elements the listener happens to be, which isn't to say there isn't enough to stand on its own without relying on these background subtleties. While this is the sort of album I only tend to find appealing under very specific circumstances, _The Scope_ nevertheless does a good job of providing some interesting, relaxing music.
