ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Binary Scenes:

"The music is sometimes free-floating deepspace like “Suspended Ascent ″ but he often infuses electronica grooves as the album moves from gentle pastoral guitar-strumming ambiences like “China Box” to cyclical bell-tones that recall Klaus Schulze’s “Crystal Lake” on “Chronoswamp,” but updating those retro sounds with glitched stutters. Those are two of our favorite tracks on Echoes along with “A Winter’s Gift.” The name Atomic Skunk kind of stinks (yuck-yuck), but the music on Binary Scenes, except for a couple of audio verité soundscapes, is mostly note perfect ambient, full of mood, unusual dreamstate shifts and psychedelic edges."

"Sometimes you hear music and it has to grow on you then there is music that as soon as you hear it it grabs you and you have to let people know about it...this is that music. I love ambient, downtempo music and Atomic Skunk has that surreal, haunting yet relaxing music that makes you take notice.

"He puts me in the mind of John Serrie when I heard Flightpath for the first time. This is the type of music that makes me kick back, light some candles, turn off all the lights on a weekend night and just let my mind just "be".

From the beginning track, "Chronoswamp" you are embarking on a journey of peace and tranquility."

"If Atomic Skunk keeps this up the sky is truly the limit. Just when I thought I was going to have to hunt for some good ambient/soundscape music, it falls in my lap...thanks Rich Brodsky."

"Wonderful soundscapes and ambient music that just forces a headspace of chill & peacefulness. Some of the the tunes have a sense of melacholy about them but in the lightest meaning of the word. Think Ultimae or maybe some of the more ambient Liquid Sound compilations."

atomic skunk
San Francisco Bay Area based electronic musician, Rich Brodsky aka Atomic Skunk, weaves together ambient field recordings, lush pads, and organic acoustic instruments with high-tech arpeggiated synths, glitchy, chaotic rhythms, and haunting melodies to create a unique psychedelic ambient soundscape.

Although he played in traditional western rock bands for many years, Rich has always leaned towards the deconstruction of traditional forms. He has studied non-western music such as Indonesian Gamelan, Indian Ragas, and African drumming and counts these along with ambient artists, The Orb and The Future Sound of London as well as the legendary Hearts of Space radio show as some of his strongest influences.

In 2008, Rich began composing and recording his own ambient electronic music, using an amazing piece of software called Ableton Live.  Live's non-linear approach to music composition opened up a world of creative possibilities that led to the first Atomic Skunk creations. In early 2009, Rich released his first eight compositions as Atomic Skunk for his debut album, Binary Scenes.

Exquisite
When dining at a 5 star restaurant, a person can expext to be served an exquisite meal prepared by a Master Chef using a smidge of this, a pinch of that, maybe a rare bit of something else. What the Master Chef does is take all these ingredients and mixes them his own way to create perfection. What Atomic Skunk has done with "Binary Scenes" is much the same.
He takes a bit of Wendy Carlos and Jean-Michel Jarre, mixes in some Pink Floyd and Return To Forever, he adds a sprinkle of Seastones, Isao Tomita and Kraftwerk. He uses these influences to create his own original, exquisite meal. Binary Scenes is truely magnificent and Rich Brodsky needs to be congratulated.
