Genre/Influences: Experimental, soundtrack, ambient.

Background/Info: Robert Scott Thompson is a real prolific artist who has released an impressive number of productions throughout the years. It seems that his first experiments happened in the 70s. This work features 6 cuts that were composed during Summer 2015.

Content: Three tracks of this album are quite elaborated and long-during. There’re pretty soundtrack-minded, which is an aspect you also find back at the 3 tracks left. The atmospheres are dreamy-like although still a bit dark. I also noticed one track (cf. “Lavandula”) with an Eastern sound inspiration.

+ + + : This is the kind of music appealing for a visual content. I’m missing the images although some passages are strong enough to imagine a very own fantasy story. Sound-wise the tracks reveal subtle sound arrangements and fine treatments fragile as porcelain.

– – – : I like the ambient sphere around this work, but I think it’s the kind of music that needs a real visual part.

Conclusion: Robert Scott Thompson is a truly experimental artist, but first of all a great sound designer.

Best songs: “Lavandula”, “Slow Rotation Of Stars”.

Rate: (7).

Artist: /
