Today AEON ZEN is pleased to present the fifth and final video in their “Top 5 Riffs” series. This instalment focuses on “Keyboard Riffs”. Check out the video on AEON ZEN‘s YouTube channel HERE.
Keyboardist Shaz described his video:
“An added dimension resonating with soul is added to the Soundscape of Enigma in the form of its keyboards. Through strings and choirs alone, at times the listener is able to witness the glory of Heaven unfolding in the forefront of his mind, while at other times given a front seat to the dark, despairing depths of man’s inner turmoil. The atmospheric pads provide a journey through a cosmic universe, humbling one at the sheer glory of all that remains unknown and unseen.”
