Dan Caine Takes Listeners On Ambient Journey
Journey Through an Open Mind is a four song instrumental EP that takes the listener through a variety of sounds and emotions. The title track, “Journey Through An Open Mind,” is long at 10 minutes, but is easy to get lost in. The song features an electric guitar over an acoustic guitar and electronic beats. This combination gives a spacey feel, and creates an atmospheric sound. The electric guitar hovers over the rest of the sounds, and guides the listener through the song.
On the second track, “Arcus,” Caine contrasts the cold sound of the first track with a warmer opening. It features the same instrumentation, but with a much softer guitar. “Arcus” feels much more laid back in comparison. The song subtly builds up towards the middle, but ends softly."
