Sebastian Müller Generates Dreamlike Feelings of Hopeful Anticipation on the Brightly Ambient “Manor Farm / Finding Life”

The mysterious moods evoked by Sebastian Müller’s “Manor Farm / Finding Life” is perfectly paired to footage of a night drive on a country highway with the foliage at the side of the road lit by headlights and passing by in a kind of blur like the details of a half remembered dream. The ambient synth and processed drone alongside field recordings of distant conversation and rain progresses along until brighter melodic sounds come into the field of hearing and more distinctive sounds carry you along even as the imagery in the video turns more abstract and blurred out into the infinity of the subconscious mind. There is a sense of hopefulness and low level excitement as though traveling toward something promising an elusive which is a quality one doesn’t hear enough in ambient music and the track fades out in a way that finally achieving one’s goal puts an end to the anticipation with one hopes is the payoff of one’s patience and rewarding of the anticipation.
