SRi RLD could be David Burraston's most accessible release at Psoma to date. It presents ever-shifting movements between melodic bell-like tones and more breathy sustained passages of metallic pipe pitches, and the four pieces offered occupy a unique position for a NYZ album, which allow them to be experienced in an abstract wash of sound, as you might normally approach NYZ recordings, or they can be focused on in different moments, forming melodious shapes and suggestions of harmony and resolution. In this way, SRi RLD is perhaps more in the vein of classic ambient music by Eno, Carlos, Rabe and Lucier - compositions that could be appreciated to the same degree that they could be ignored, by design. As ever, Burraston continues to offer the widest array of synthesized sound from his studies, a continually tantalizing journey for the rest of us to eavesdrop on as it comes to pass.

*In this sprawling audio "cycle", Stephan explores analogue sounds and drones that are peaceful, subtle and abstract at times. Like any large compendium, one must revisit it time and again to capture all that is exquisitely presented. If resolute, there are many beautiful rewards to discover here.
Best w/ headphones... Enjoy!
