(Theatrical, slightly sequenced, somber and melodious EM)
When we speak about timeless classic in EM, we have to slide this album at the top of the list. I was lucky to put my hand on it when it was released back in 1985. EM knew then a major bend. Its craftsmen tried to influence the kind towards a more accessible approach, abandoning the long pieces of music for more melodious structures with the use of the digital synths and\or a wide range of samplings. This period of transition left us all the same in inheritance some very good albums. â€śLet The Night Last Foreverâ€ť from Walter Christian Rothe is one of them. Some people will say, and I am one of them, that this 2nd album of the Belgian musician is the precursor of this dark and poetic EM where reign a sordid atmosphere of horror. There were well some albums of Mark Shreeve, but none had this very theatrical touch, and nevertheless very melodic, but â€śLet The Night Last Foreverâ€ť. This album of which the time has never succeed to buried in the oblivion (I transferred the album onto a mini--disc and then the mini--disc on CD-r) sees finally the day, thanks to the Groove NL label, in a beautiful reedition which includes 2 titles in bonus and a lot of infos.
Angels' horns announcing the end of time knock out our senses at the opening of "Intro + Dawnfall". On a fascinating aria of funeral procession, the solemn walking of â€śLet The Night Last Foreverâ€ť overture hammers as much our curiosity as our interrogation. What kind of music is it? Lugubrious and nevertheless melodic, this introduction hears out these horns get out of breath while percussions, sequences and a pulsating line of bass establish a sl... (Read More)

|Robert Rich - Tactile Ground (2019)
||Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Fri Jan 18, 2019 6:11 pm
|Robert Rich released a brand new album the other day, in fact a two CD set, entitled "Tactile Ground".
I think it's marvellous, then again as a fanboy, I might be biased...
These are the "liner notes" on BC - or maybe a liner poem, rather:
Can we find a tactile ground,
an animal surface upon which to calibrate our humanity?
Skin telegraphs sensation from air,
filtered from distant worlds.
Language constricts our sense of self
to an illusion of separation.
The verb of living, flux and transmutation,
expands outward from the middle,
concentric ripples on a pond.
We drop through the surface,
pebbles tossed from the shore.
A listener called Paul Seaman also wrote a short review, to which I actually tend to agree...
This album feels like the culmination of themes Rich has been exploring over the past decade, from the Eno-like sparseness of Nest to the latest scientific understandings about the universe; from his melancholy trilogy on humans' impact on nature to his recent contemplative, improvisational duets with Markus Reuter. In these gently hopeful tracks, there is both specificity and acceptance.
