Robert Cory – Point Of Origin
CD, Private Release, 2003

Robert Cory is an Arizona-based musician and soundengineer who already has three other solo albums under his belt and who successfully worked several times with contemporary music composer Chris Spheeris.
Well, “Point of Origin” didn’t disappoint me at all as it offers a nice blend of instrumental music, a beautiful cross-over of electronic and acoustic textures. It can’t be denied a certain commercial element can be found in his music, but overall it sounds rather original and sometimes even shows a few references towards Patrick O’Hearn and early Yanni.

Album-opener “Escape” really sets a good mood, with some great percussion, which is also present on almost all tracks next to some subtle but catchy melodies. Listening to this album really brings you in a pleasant and relaxed mood. Its warm textures make it even more attractive.

But the best part, in my modest opinion, is found at the end: “Inertia” is a fantastic piece of spacemusic with expansive, heartfelt textures, lasting nearly eight minutes.

The only unfortunate thing about this cd is it only last for 40 minutes… Nevertheless, this great sounding cd deserves my personal recommendation and makes me anxious to hear something of his earlier work.
