|Alchemy presents ambient soundscapes of delicate nuance and beautiful musicality. In this recording, Robert Scott Thompson returns to his roots of minimalist, tonal composition within the ambient genre. This CD presents subtle music of serene proportions and brilliance.
Recorded expressly for Jim Brenholts, and his book "Tracks Across the Universe - A Chronology of Ambient and Electronic Music", in Fall of 2000, Alchemy proposes a new direction for Robert Scott Thompson’s ambient music. The disc is comprised of 11 tracks which are carefully sequenced for an evocative flow. The design of the album emphasizes a recurring thematic identity together with subtle shadings and perspectives.
Alchemy is a disc which embraces the general aesthetics of "classical" ambient music but also presents materials derived from state-of-the-art computer music techniques. Beautifully recorded, mixed and spatialized in enveloping dynamic stereo.
This recording was re-mastered in 2007.
