Review of Novachild’s 2011 album “Havia”
by Dayna VanHauen, “DarkKitty” of DarkKitty Productions
When you think of the name Novachild, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?
Try separating the two words that complete the name and you get; “Nova”: Plural Novae or novas. A white dwarf star that suddenly and temporarily becomes extremely bright as a result of the explosion at its sun of material accreted from an expanding companion star. Next the word, “child”: a youth of gentle birth. Both perfectly matching to a tee description of the artist, Bruce Rich aka Novachild.
Every composition I have heard of his was a pure burst of brilliance in my ear drums that had a huge impact on my inner youth. I had the pleasure of listening to Novachild in the past, and I have always become easily lost in his compositions. The blends of ambient sounds and waves of many instruments help guide you into an entire new world far better than the everyday one.
As most of his music reminds me of a score from a life inspired movie, certain songs always stood out to me more than others. A perfect example is the song “Analogue Revolutionary”. This song is definitely a song I’d like to blast through the speakers in my car as I drive a long winding road. The many sounds that come together in a multitude of percussion and the electronic patterns is perfect for soothing the soul and guiding you through another dimension. The music promotes carefree thought.
Another song that stood out to me was the song “Kiss That Baby”. Knowing that Novachild is a relatively new father of a beautiful baby, I felt the strong love he has for his bundle of joy come through his talents. The distant sounds of babies natural cooing and giggling took me right back to the days that my very own bundle was in infant stage. The playful electronic tone and robotic chants of baby kissing that carried through the song that took me back a couple of years to when I was looking down into the sparkling eyes of my offspring.
Last but not least, the next song that stood out was “Our Pleasant Moments Fly”. I really can’t even explain why this song stood out to me. Perhaps, the genius jazzy influence that roared together, or perhaps it was a message subliminally implanted into my brain. Either way, the song was sensational!
Novachild is one artist that I look forward to every album that is released. Each album just gets better and better. I highly recommend this artist to anyone who enjoys tracks of pure relaxation, message and inspiration.~Darkkitty Productions~
