Robert Rich – Sunyata & Inner Landscapes

Latest Two Robert Rich CDs Available

Two new ones at the Hypnos store, the two latest from Robert Rich:

Robert Rich – Nest
(Robert Rich category)
(Price: $13.99)

Latest from Robert Rich. “NEST begins with the kind of resolve many other CDs end on. With consonant chords and spare piano notes Robert Rich begins a wonderful journey through eight distinctive music tracks and contemplative moods. Although some of Rich’s work seems to dispense with the idea of beginning, middle and end, NEST does possess a vague compositional arc. Using steel guitar, bells, flutes, synthesizers, piano and environmental recordings, alone or in various combinations, Rich realizes beautifully detailed
soundscapes from just a small number of sources.”
– Chuck van Zyl/STAR’S END…

Robert Rich – Medicine Box
(Robert Rich category)
(Price: $13.99)

Ecstatic, shamanic, surreal, spiritual: Medicine Box may be Rich’s most dynamic album yet, an adept blending of technology with the ancient. Cheri Chuang’s wordless crystalline voice graces three songs, with traces of Persian inflection. Deep basslines hint at dub, while analog synth skitters and chuffs the outlines of a rhythmic grid, propelled forward by pulsing north African drums. Sustaining guitars bring a psychedelic edge. Cello and reeds echo plaintively in the distance. Rich’s sparse piano
adds droplets of modal jazz to this dark tea….

According to this follow-up announcement, copied below, that house concert is now sold out. You can contact Jesse if you wish to be added to the waiting list in case someone cancels or fails to pay.

Greetings! It is with great pleasure I announce that the Robert Rich house show is officially fully booked! Those of you who have paid and confirmed attendance, thank you for supporting this event and it will surely be a great night for everyone.

For those of you who are receiving this who have not yet responded, or have expressed interest but did not yet pay for a spot, I am sorry to say that at this point all I can do is add you to a wait list and should a person cancel I will contact you informing you of the opening. First come first served and as noted in the official confirmation message, I can only refund a payment if/when a person on the wait list pays and fills the cancelled spot and/or if the performance itself is cancelled.

I will send out a couple reminders prior to the show to those of you who have purchased a ticket.

Again, thanks to all who expressed interent in, participated with, and supported this event.
