As the age-old saying (loosely) goes, "Nothing is forever". And unsurprisingly, Leandro Fresco's ambient interpretation of such thought in "Nada Es Para Siempre" is anything but cliché. Originally slated as one of the featured tracks under Kompakt's Pop Ambient 2015 compilation released last November, the lifting track now receives a proper visual aid that supplements the audio magnificence the Argentinian producer delivers.
A moving snapshot gazing the outside world full of clouds from an airplane window-seat opens up the scene. The formlessness and contemplative nature in Fresco's onset pads balance the undefined, slow-moving shape of such clouds seen. Soon after, there comes a cloudless drift that shows nothing but the plane's soaring wing, and we really get the wedging elegance of what he tries to portray with the gentle key strokes.
Things speed up visually as the airplane shot cuts into a train ride with a backdrop panorama of more marshmallow-colored skies. The therapeutic narrative of "Nada Es Para Siempre" continues to unfold with train rides and long drives as suggestive motifs. The video ultimately amplifies the feeling of passivity we get from the chords, allowing listeners to take a step back, plug-out, and get lost in our imaginations. This is a nice way to spend 8 minutes if you just want to feel at ease with no sense of time.
Watch the video for Leandro Fresco's "Nada Es Para Siempre" and be sure to pick up the rest of the Pop Ambient 2015 compilation.
