With “Change of Weather”, US-composer Dan Pound had delivered another intense and quite enjoyable ambient recording.
Fortunately, “Rainforest” picks up the positive trail again, incorporating some flute hovering over the gentle shifting soundscapes. A sense of motion and twist of events surfaces on “A Different Wind” where a harmonica enhances the vaporous sound design briefly. On the final piece, bits of high-tech penetrate the flowing but still very loosely structured sound trail once more which doesn’t turn out too convincing and captivating in the end.
This said, there’s something missing in the second half of the release that would make “Change of Weather” more satisfying, solid and expressive than it is right now (though it’s not a bad recording).
