The Seven Mile Journey is a post-rock band from Denmark, which has worked with instrumental music since 1999, and whose debut album The Journey Studies was released in 2006. The basis of the music are dynamic shifts and gloomy sounds, long and intense sound surfaces, which invite the listener to absorption.
Notes for the Synthesis is constructed of 6 unified tracks moving through gloomy and melancholic passages to intense and captivating soundscapes. Each track tells its own tale in the overall storyline, inviting the listener into the role of narrator and interpretor of the instrumental introverted musical journey.
The album further explores The Seven Mile Journey´s musical approaches and concepts deeper than ever before, along with combining these with new ones. Through this the band creates new layers in their music and is intensifying and broadening the overall dimensions and expression in the songs, in the sound of The Seven Mile Journey, and in the new album as a whole.
