JOHN FLOMER
Mysterious Motions of Memory
CD, Spotted Peccary Music, 1996
"Mysterious Motions of Memory", a concept album on genetic memory, is the debut-release of Minneapolis-based "visual musician" John Flomer on the prestigious Spotted Peccary label.
To achieve this outcome, John applied a high-tech, synthesizer-based ensemble "Primal Cinema".

The cd, which has some beautiful graphics and cover art, opens and closes with a short track with whispered poem phrases. In total, it contains 45 minutes of dreamy, imaginative and majestic music, in which hints of orchestral and space music can be heard.
At times, it also made me think of the grand music of Richard Burmer, which may be due to the sweeping, dynamic and slightly medieval soundscapes Mr Flomer comes up with. In addition, there’s a lot or drama and adventure to be found within John's well-crafted, highly attractive and cinematic soundworlds.


All in all, "Mysterious Motions of Memory" is a highly recommended, well produced and mastered evocative work or art which merges the beautiful, the mysterious and beyond.
Well done, Mr Flomer!
