"Azurescens" is Maps and Diagrams' latest assignment, a concept shaped during brief moments in time during the autumn and winter of 2018, it's immersed in deeper, acoustical explorations to previous works but retains a certain familiar sentiment found in earlier releases. "Azurescens" gives the sonic perception of spiralling out of control throughout it's sixty-nine minute duration but also guides the listener back to a level of consciousness and tangibility.
