Following the same path laid out by 2017's Abysma, California electronic composer Will Wiesenfeld (aka Geotic) delivers the spiritual follow-up one year later with the short but sweet Traversa. Much like its predecessor, Traversa is a transportive excursion into delicate digital soundscapes populated by soft dance beats, glossy atmosphere, and enveloping warmth, as if Postal Service dove headlong into the ambient sphere. Wiesenfeld's whispered vocals float in and out of half the tracks, but otherwise Traversa remains free-form and without much to tether it to earth.
