CD-R/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Private Release, 2003
"Four Patterns" is the 3rd cd of UK-based musician Simon Slator which smoothly follows the path taken by his predecessors "6am" and "Antarctica".
The outcome (a non-generative ambient piece where almost everything is based around the number 4) is a very relaxing album full of delicate atmospheres and tranquillity, featuring one continous track clocking at 54 minutes.
When using headphones, it's almost certain your mind will take a rest as it takes a deep dive into a serene and minimalistic sculptured soundworld where soft flowing layers of sound wash on and on. It’s almost a dedication to the genius work of Roach's "Quiet Music"-series or the kindred works of Brian Eno. A grand recording which deserves both thumbs up!
With a bit of luck you can still find this release somewhere on the internet.
The album was re-released in April 2014 under the composers own name and features a new cover.
