Rich, Robert - Medicine Box (22758)
Ambient icon Robert Rich strikes back with brand new sonic pearl
"Medicine Box", released at November 1st, 2011, on his own Soundscape
Productions imprint. Following the footsteps of legendary albums like
"Propagation", "Seven Veils" or more recent "Ylang", this new album
bridges all trademarking ingredients of these masterworks, but also
adds other unique and challenging flavors.

"Medicine Box" unwraps with "Alba", a sublimely euphoric blend of
world fusion and ambient, it's attractively perfumed and richly
textured warm, rhythm-charged composition featuring as guest Haroun
Serang on guitar, who already contributed to several other Robert's
albums. Intro with very intoxicating melody! "Kaaruwana" brings to the
stage shimmering wordless voices of Cheri Chuang, a classically
trained composer and vocalist, moving from absolutely ethereal and
angelic to fragilely whispering ones, beautifully interacting with
Robert's crystalline soundscaping, a truly poetic bliss for my ears!!!
Strongly organic and colorfully unique "Macula" is dominated by
evocative gentle piano and crispy pulsing percussions with notable
appearances of Hans Christian on cello (long time collaborator of
Robert Rich) and Edo Castro on bass. Chromatic harmonica of Slim
Heilpern wonderfully spices "Cornea" and adds western feel to this
rather psychedelically eclectic composition. "Crepescule" succeeds
magnificently in portraying the power and beauty of Robert's flute
magic, with subtle polyrhythms that are joined by poignant cello and
cheerful piano. A truly haunting masterpiece evoking yearning and
nostalgia!!! "Pollen" is another emotionally moving and heartwarming
composition highlighted by Cheri Chuang's heavenly voices and
exotic-charged subtle movements. "Callyx" masterfully fuses sensitive
melodies with eerie lap steel guitar ambiences. Denser landscapes are
explored through "Salamander Quay", showcasing Robert's outstanding
skill in expressing emotions through his electroacoustic wizardry and
musicality. The journey culminates with almost 11 minutes long
epilogue "Helios", painted with magnetizing exotic polyrhythms in the
first half, while the second part excels with celestial voices
floating above shadowy sonic panoramas.

I think this composition displays the best Robert's distinctive sound
painting with carefully selected and merged virtuoso performances of
Cheri Chuang, Hans Christian and Edo Castro. An absolutely magnificent
"all inclusive" blend holding the signature that is only Robert Rich
and designed directly for my Ambient Hall Of Fame!!! "Medicine Box" is
an ultimate and triumphant shamanistic healing journey with genius
performances on every level dedicated to all connoisseurs of world
fusion/tribal/ambient essentials!!! Audiophile sound quality and
gorgeous 6-panel digipak artwork by the Bergin gang should be
immediately awarded too!!!

Forrest, Andrew - Resonance (67436)
Despite the hard times to survive by putting out hard copy releases
nowadays, independent electronic sound painter Andrew Forrest once
more has found the faith and guts to let his creativity prevail above
all. The idea of a harmonics trilogy surfaced a few years back from
now, as Andrew always had been fascinated by the word harmonic,
especially in the obviously musical sense. It is his vision all of
life is harmonic in a sense, everything vibrating at different
frequencies and holding a unique resonance. When something resonates,
it feels like there is an unspoken harmony, a kind of 'in-tune-ness'
or equilibrium. This resonance seems to be a communication that is
beyond words, beyond the mind, beyond time/space limitations. To sum
it up: music is such a wonderful and natural medium for resonance to
be expressed creatively.
While sculpting the body of work that would become the three movements
of "Resonance", Mr Forrest soon had the feeling the outcome was going
to be very powerful and magical. At the same time, it proved it would
break some new sonic ground too. The music also soon revealed a
traditionally classical approach to form. First of all, it contained
themes at the start of each movement echoing later on towards the end
of the same movement. Secondly, Andrew very much enjoyed developing
the crescendo idea in each movement, exploring musical tension and
release through a very slow build up that eventually resolves in a
massive peak, usually followed by a more subtle, gentle passage. The
sonic discovery eventually found Andrew exploring the many (if not
endless) ins and outs of musical dramas of apparent
opposites...melting light and shade, peaks and troughs, melody and
abstraction.

"Resonance" marks the kick-off for the new "Harmonics"-trilogy of
celestial space music, in which Andrew invested over 12 months of
exhausting and challenging work along over 100 mixes of the music. The
66-minute work consists of three expansive, textural movements with
occasional sequenced passages. There's a great ebb and flow of both
massive and subtle sound pads that make up an in-depth and passionate
journey. On this behalf, Andrew likes to state the listener will be
immersed in a resonant harmonic sound field that will potentially
cleanse, open and heal, hopefully leaving you feeling a sense of
renewed inner- peace and well-being. I personally feel immersing in
the soft and highly imaginary core of "Resonance" and riding its
neo-classical/ethereal waves is a celebration of pure beauty and
wonder. Its spacious, grand design simply washes over you in a hugely
comfortable sense, feeling honest and so much alive in all its
calmness. The sparkling and at times awe inspiring out come is most
rewarding and satisfactory, creating a different and quiet mind set.
Hat's off once more to you, Andrew!
