October 21st, 2016 will mark the release of "Eye Of The Soundscape", a complementary instrumental album by Polish Prog masters, via InsideOutMusic. The release features cover artwork by Travis Smith and includes 13 experimental and highly atmospheric compositions, which showcase RIVERSIDE's ambient electronic side.
The release's opening track, "Where The River Flows", is available as of today online as first single via the streaming / digital download outlet of your choice or it can also be checked out here:
RIVERSIDE's Mariusz Duda checked in with the following comment about the track:
"This composition shows what the new RIVERSIDE album is about. Long, spacey soundscapes and the marriage of electronic and organic music. In my opinion a perfect introduction to our ambient and instrumental world. One of the last four compositions with Grudzien. One day we will all meet where the river flows".
"Eye Of The Soundscape" compiles all the special instrumental RIVERSIDE tracks previously used as bonus material for the "Shrine Of New Generation Slaves" and "Love, Fear And The Time Machine" albums, alongside rare cuts as well as 4 new songs ("Where The River Flows", "Shine", "Sleepwalkers" and "Eye Of The Soundscape") into a massive playing time of +100 minutes, which will be available as 2CD-Mediabook, 3LP (With both CD's as bonus and an etching on Side F!) or as Digital Download.
