Shima is the personal artistic vision of Michael Ferriss, and his new album, Light, is another journey into the electronic world’s consciousness. This is the third Shima album, and each evolution has gathered more listeners for this original mood music. From the ambient to the eclectically rhythmic and percussive (occasionally orchestral even), this vibrant, kinetic work is both introspective and invigorating. Something of a concept album inspired by themes of earth and sky and the lives in between. Light is a musical metaphor that bears much repeated listening. Shima has produced another quality product of self-expression for the selective masses.
