Monika Stadler and Harald Peterstorfer join forces for deep, personal album
(Published: April 15, 2021)

Monika Stadler and Harald Peterstorfer have joined forces to release a fantastic new project, Diary from Within. As the title of this release might suggest, the music that you can expect to hear on this album is incredibly personal and forward-thinking. There are so many intimate moments, highlighting the beauty of the pair's creative chemistry, as well as a connection with the audience on a deeper personal level.

The album kicks off with the song "The Awakening," which immediately sets the mood with a series of mesmerizing arpeggios and impactful melodies. The sparse soundscapes are rich and beautiful, creating a deep emotional connection with the audience. The following track, "The Near Inside The Far," is a moving composition that sets the bar higher in terms of exploring haunting soundscapes and different tonal changes by exploring the full potential of the guitar, not only as a melodic instrument, but also as a texture-driven sound design tool.

There are many wonderful and totally stunning soundscapes on this album, but "Lonely Lament" has to be one of my favorite compositions on this release. The lead sounds are so emotional and direct, creating a link with the most ancestral raw elements of nature. This song makes me think of being alone in a forest that's been there for thousands of years, untouched and unspoiled by mankind's rattling engines of "so-called" progress. This beautifully evocative song sets the bar higher, and just when you think it can't get any better, "Call to the Wild" tops it off with an even more spiritual and distinctive approach. This song even forgoes traditional melodic instruments and goes for a primal focus on how the human voice can be the most powerful instrument, even without intelligible lyrics in the most traditional sense.

The final track, "Week of Wonders," is a perfect way to pull the curtain on this beautiful record. Overall, Diary from Within happens to be a very soothing, at times even hypnotic listening experience. It has a fantastic organic sound, and the production quality is absolutely world-class, particularly when compared to other modern records in this genre, which at times tend to overdo it.
