Robert Rich – Ylang
CD, Soundscape Productions, 2010

After several collaborative albums, Robert Rich returns with the sonic perfume project entitled “Ylang”, a rather complex album which sees him blend “languid polyrhythms with infusions of South Indian Karnatic music, post-ock, jazz and minimalisms”.

But most of all, the organic flavoured outcome of “Ylang” is one that clearly holds the trademark of Robert Rich, certainly when one hears the soaring and soft yearning tones of his lap steel guitar and flute.

Accompanied by a range of talented musicians, Robert subtle and detailed sound design guides us through a wonderful sonic world of evocative melodic world-fusion music with a nice rhythmic feel.

It all makes “Ylang” a spacious and transparent work of art, as its borders both world and electronic music while staying true to its own sonic entity.
This said, I trust fans of his “Propagation” and “Seven Veils” albums will be much pleased by the genuine and honest character found in Rich’s audiophile production “Ylang”.
