• robert scott thompson Shadow Gazing (CD, £9.25)

    label: Aucourant Records

    A seventy-two minute disc featuring 7 computer music compositions created over an eight year period, from 1986 to 1994, by composer Robert Scott Thompson. SHADOW GAZING wonderfully expresses the capacities and techniques of state-of-the-art computer music composition. These works add significantly to the growing body of computer music literature and present a unique approach to the development of sound composition technique. While SHADOW GAZING is best classified as contemporary classical music, lovers of new-age, ambient and alternative instrumental music will find much to their liking here. The beautiful title track, for example, is best described as ambient music while the award-winning RuST dazzles with never before heard timbres and textures. “This is expressive music and anyone who likes computer music will want to hear it. Anybody who thinks they know computer music and doesn’t like it, should hear it.” – American Record Guide
