4 reviews for Craig Padilla & Skip Murphy – Phantasma

  1. Phil Derby / Electroambient Space

    Craig Padilla is one of those rare individuals equally at home with classic Berlin school music and longform minimal ambient pieces. For every melodic album hes done like One, hes done something like the stark icy ambience of Vostok. Phantasma, which also includes frequent collaborator Skip Murphy, falls somewhere in the middle along the continuum, in that respect reminiscent of Padillas Genesis album from a couple years back.
    Mellow space music pieces like Shadowed Transistion” (sic) and “Sleepwalking” are the order of the day. Although sequencing appears here and there

  2. Edgar Kogler

    In this new collaboration between both artists, we witness a careful display of electronic architectures, wealthy in nuances of sound, where Space Music shines in full power. Melodies dyed with the atavistic emotions awakened by The Unknown within the human mind, unearthly landscapes as wondrous as they are disquieting, complex rhythms that propel us into a highly risky journey throughout natural wonders, technological deeds of epic proportions, and the unfathomable mysteries of the future, are but a few of the most remarkable traits that can be found in this magnificent album.

    2007. Edgar Kogler

  3. Chuck van Zyl / Star’s End

    Years of experience are showing through in the work of Craig Padilla. His many concerts and collaborations with Skip Murphy have paid off in the form of a nuanced and mature work. This duo are realizing pieces that sound modern yet come across as strong as classics 20 or 30 years old.
    Phantasma (71’46) casts a dreamy electronic mood as it undercuts technology with an unexpected air of tenderness and sensuality. Its sense of drama comes not from manic leads

  4. Mark Jenkins

    Just to emphasise the fact that Groove doesn’t release only European artists or those creating up-tempo sequencer-based music, Phantasma” is a largely ambient production by two North Californian keyboardists
