Robert Rich's first Hearts of Space Records album!
Availability: In stock.
Rainforest takes you on a polyrhythmic journey into the lush green beauty of the tropical soundspace. A rich, magical ambience and welter of musical influences from southeast Asian gamelan to European classical electronic stretch the mind with a seductive, multi-cultural mix. Rainforest demonstrates the paradox of contemporary electro-acoustic spacemusic projects, with its high-tech approach to some very ancient musical experiences. Digital samplers, computer sequencers, specially tuned synthesizers, conventional acoustic instruments, skin drums, and ambient sound recordings all cohabit a seamless musical and spatial environment.
On the deepest level, ROBERT RICH says the music is about the "yearning for unity... couched in the metaphor of a world of lush green beauty." And you can dance to it! (here and there), while you discover some musical dimensions your parents never told you about.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of this album support the Rainforest Action Network, a non-profit action organization working to save the world's rainforests.
