In comparison to his beautiful debut album “The Three Surrenders”, the ambient music on “West of the Fire” (Soundtracks for Photographs, Volume Two) is a long form circular work.
Again, Stu takes us through a highly imaginary sonic scenery of free form textures while exploring the natural landscape, ephemera, illusion, and the vagaries of time and space, once more attempting to mirror and echo his breathtaking photographic work.
While listening, one can almost feel, touch and immerse in the dreamlike
The quiet and well-crafted aural landscapes of “West of the Fire” should please any ambient music fan who digs the ethereal works of Steve Roach and beyond.
