by Robert Rich.
Robert Rich: synths, bamboo flutes, guitar.
Opening with the sequential Approach one can see a new music in the making, for Robert this is exceptionally vibrant and melodic. Ascent comprises various bird and insect noises, metallic tones and swelling, oozing string synth. Descent Into The First Chamber / First Chamber / Second Chamber / Third Chamber take us from side 1 and through a lot of side 2 with some of the most surreal organ, whale-call like moans and glissando effects. The closing Ascent reprises with flute and Peter Michael Hamel style drones replacing the string synth.
This is not the same release as the CD of the same name, although the source masters are from the same sessions! There is some material in common, however this is a much more evocative and flowing "live" excursion, without the plush remix that Robert later gave to such recordings. Well-over 20 years old now, these are the last copies of this original release!
