“Transcendence” is the next chapter of the collaborative musical explorations of electronic producer Ivan Shopov and jazz pianist and composer Dimitar Bodurov. Consisting of six long-form and deeply immersive pieces, inhabiting the realms of neoclassical music, ambient, experimental jazz, and downtempo electronica, the sequel to 2020's "Coalescence" is a daring, playful, and rhythmic musical offering. The flame of this collaboration was seemingly sparked by the spontaneity and energy of free improvisation but of precision and musical mastership as well. “Transcendence” is highly atmospheric but always remains focused and direct. Carrying the traits of contemporary composition and advanced sound design, it's a challenging but captivating and intriguing listen. Most importantly, Shopov & Bodurov manage to paint a coherent musical landscape. Their signature approaches and styles remain recognizable but are also heavily intertwined thus creating something of their own.
