I never cared much for the general melodic music Dutch synthesist Robert Marselje released, until now. The sonic content of his 78-minute album “5” is the counterpoint of his previous work, featuring five tracks with calm, imaginary as well as darker-shaded, rather mysterious-angled soundscapes of a freeform nature to make the listener slow down.
Extended, slow-progressing, and evolving chords merged with long drones and floating tapestries that vary in intensity drift and in as we wander through an atmospheric labyrinth of sounds where a flash of hidden melody surfaces only occasionally. Nice going, Robert.
