Jon Jenkins – Flow
CD, Spotted Peccary, 1998


“Flow” is the second release by synthesist Jon Jenkins, which sees him use the metaphor of water to create an introspective ambient world of beauty wonder.

The outcome is a beautiful blend of carefully crafted and shaped soundscapes to which the sound of Jeff Pearce’s ambient electric guitars is add along the occasional percussion played on Taos drums.
Don’t think this is all quiet music, as the keen use of percussion and expert layering of textures occasionally create moments of intriguing tension and drama, after which the contemplative state returns.

All in all, the smooth, gentle and liquid-like ambience of the excellently produced “Flow” is very much in vein of the deep textural worlds investigated by Steve Roach and alike.
Recommended.
