Robert Scott Thompson - analog and digital synthesizers, piano, acoustic and electronic percussion, electric guitar, bass guitar, cello, flute and computer generated sound
This is a continuation in many ways of Thompson's earlier works on CD, Deeper in the Dreamtime, The Strong Eye, Ginnungapap, and Shadow Gazing.
Each new release seems to be a refinement of Robert's own unique musical dream. This release melds computer generated music, pop, world, and ambient influences into a cohesive collection of fourteen pieces, milestones of aural communication.
To achieve this unique tapestry of sound, Robert uses analog and digital synthesizers, piano, acoustic and electronic percussion, electric guitar, bass, cello, and flute to create a synthesis of real and imagined timbres. Thompson creates a unique visual imagery with the music.. conveying the right mood to make each piece create maximum impact on the listener. Robert combines various influences and creates a satisfying blend - driving rhythms, industrial cacophonies, dark ambience - forming pieces that transform and mutate throughout, avoiding the stasis of much ambience. What takes place is a compromise between the ancient and the new, the spiritual and the material.
Air Friction is animated music with a fresh improvisation spirit and a true artistic statement which further defines the ever-changing musical persona of Robert Scott Thompson.
