The "Dark Flight" album offers a crossover of genres, borrowing from flavors of "art" and "psychedelic" instrumental rock but always within a strong envelope of ambient electronic music. A newer designation, "Post-Rock" is associated with music originating from an instrumental rock background but which often uses the traditional rock instruments as textural and sonic instruments to create instrumental tapestries that also often blend with ambient and synthesizer created soundscapes.
This compilation album, titled "Dark Flight" presents a selection of tracks chosen for their darker but ethereal characteristics. You will find many of the traditional sounds of psy/art/post rock, but also a healthy serving of synthesized ambiences and soundscapes.
