“Timelessness” by Dan Caine and Musicformessier

Timelessness is a collaboration between two inspired ambient guitarists: Dan Caine from England, and István Csarnogurszky from Hungary, under the alias “musicformessier”. It is an album of peaceful, transcendental and atmospheric songs, where the profound, emotive guitar lines and textures of Dan Caine converge and harmonise with the poetic, cosmic tones of musicformessier. The colliding and interweaving effected guitars, vast, ethereal soundscapes and haunting melodies make Timelessness a unique and interesting album.

Dan Caine is ambient / post-rock musician from Merseyside, England. A pioneer in the movement, Caine uses powerful, layered guitar melodies to create an atmosphere of an intense range of thought and emotion as he explores the depths of the human psyche. His music is a free-flow of subconscious urge and instinct; a deep dive into the unhindered world of the Id. Much like a fine wine, these meditative works expose more and more of their depth with each listen, and like a mood ring, they morph and change to reflect the state of the listener perceiving them. Caine’s music is also richly melodic and is layered with vibrant textures, created primarily from his collection of guitars, producing brooding atmospheres and serene sonic landscapes.

Musicformessier is the ambient/post-rock musical project of Csarnogurszky István, a 38 years old, self taught guitarist from Hungary. He formed Musicformessier to present his enthusiasm and passion of easy listening, yet demanding guitar based music.

The album “Timeless” abounds with emotion and atmosphere throughout, as well as a profound, affecting energy that touches the soul of the listener. From the opening track, “Aeon”, where the cosmic strings and spacious guitar lines introduce the tone of the album, the listener’s mind is carried to another dimension, and taken on a lucid journey through the infinity of space and time. By the final track, “Theories”, we are left with a calm, serene feeling and a sense of infinite possibility, drifting peacefully and effortlessly through the boundless, timeless cosmos.

Jackson Pollock of ambient post-rock: Dan Caine

Dan Caine is ambient/post rock musician from Merseyside, England. A pioneer in the movement, Caine uses powerful, layered guitar melodies to create an atmosphere of an intense range of thought and emotion as he explores the depths of the human psyche. His music is a free-flow of subconscious urge and instinct; a deep dive into the unhindered world of the Id. Much like a fine wine, these meditative works expose more and more of their depth with each listen, and like a mood ring, they morph and change to reflect the state of the listener perceiving them. Caine’s music is also richly melodic and is layered with vibrant textures, created primarily from his collection of guitars, producing brooding atmospheres and serene sonic landscapes.

The Jackson Pollock of ambient post-rock, Caine is a master of breaking music down to its most basic elements, and arranging them in a work of abstract purity. This enables the listener to explore their own connections to the sound and engage with the piece less as a listener, and more as an observer of aural art. His music is broad and guiding, yet flexible and undemanding, allowing the observer a space with which to process their own humanity within it.

The sixth solo album from the prolific ambient/post rock guitarist, Dan Caine, Transitions is an exploration of progressive melodies and beautiful chords layered over down tempo, yet energizing beats. The sense of mounting joy and positivity in this introspective piece is subtle, but impossible to ignore. The album is a journey through one man’s emotional evolution, from one phase of life to another, and each of the seven tracks is a uniquely expressed facet of that process.
