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.
NOTE: After some confusion from listeners, we'd like to make clear the fact that all NYZ/Noyzelab catalog releases at Psoma are available ONLY as abridged digital versions for name-your-price/free download, and in their full unabridged editions as physical CD-Rs. There is not an unabridged digital version of anything from NYZ at Psoma, and the physical editions do not ship with unabridged digital versions either (that is, if you do not count the digital music present on the compact discs). For listeners only interested in unabridged digital versions, we encourage you to visit noyzelab.bandcamp.com to purchase those directly from NYZ, or even better, subscribe to his Bandcamp output and just get everything.
