On Dedications, abstract electronic vet Sebastian Meissner pays tribute to personal influences that include Steven Spielberg, Marvin Gaye, a Russian ship worker, and his grandmother. How they impacted his ambient pieces would make for good, idle speculation, but nonetheless his finest work shines here. He has a sharp ear for echo, where one single pluck of a string or a piano chord typically rings and stays afloat in the air long after. His bright drones often resemble sunlight sweeping across a flooded forest floor. In his ode to Gaye and Ol’ Dirty Bastard, he builds a massive orchestral drone that sinks the listener underwater. As for how those men influenced that moment, it’s a question best left unanswered.
