CD-R, DataObscura, 2007
"Shadow Dreams" by graphic artist and ambient musician Robert Davies is a concept album dedicated to the strange worlds created by writers and cinematographers. It comes as a double cd, offering two hours of free form soundscapes and slow morphing drone textures.
It’s a sonic painting which descents in shadowy, imaginative realms with only a few abstract sideways. Personally, I prefer the lighter more open textural ambience featured on the first cd. The music on the second disk moves deeper and is of an advanced foreboding, abstract nature, a gateway to suspense and gothic scenery with a continuing haunting feel underneath the sonic veil.
Music for darkening hours, best sensed and experienced with your eyes closed. Robert’s fourth album is available both as download and physical cd.
