“Colors in Motion” is the debut album of New Mexico-based minimalist composer, self-taught pianist, engineer, and producer Ruben Garcia, whose also a close friend of A Produce.
This album is the most electronic compared with his later albums, which more and more featured extensively modified piano sounds. The use of a light sequencer style and acoustic percussion made me think of the solo-work Peter Bauman or Edgar Froese (“Ages”, “Pinnacles”), although Ruben’s relaxed atmospheric music tells a different story.
The second piece “Elegy” e.g. features some slight symphonic hints, but the clear sounds also have something strange and unfamiliar (listen to the western-like environmentals on “The Movie Massacre”).
Overall, “Colors in Motion” offers an interesting collection of well produced electronic mood music with original angles.
