ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Three live concerts on a three CD set, Humidity captures the trance-inducing intensity of Rich's dark ambient performances. Swirling abstract textures hover above deep throbbing tribal rhythms, while layered flutes and lap steel guitar blur against decomposed waves of rusting metal and shimmering light. This music merges harmonic sensibilities with Hermetic experimentalism, one of Rich's most uncompromising releases.

Robert Rich has pioneered new worlds of ambient and electronic music for two decades. He studied computer music at Stanford's prestigious CCRMA while earning a degree in Psychology. In 1982 he first performed his legendary Sleep Concerts, all-night shows meant to sustain hypnogogic states in sleeping audiences. His 7-hour DVD Somnium may be the longest continuous piece of music ever released on any format. Rich has recorded two dozen influential albums, ranging from the slow deep ambience of Trances/Drones, to the electro-acoustic world music of Rainforest and Seven Veils, to shadowy cinematic excursions like Stalker and Bestiary. Rich has worked with Steve Roach, Lustmord, Graeme Revelle, David Torn, Alio Die, Paul Haslinger, Ian Boddy, Vidna Obmana, and others. His group, Amoeba, explores atmospheric songcraft on their two CDs, Watchful and Pivot.

"The deep, ethereal soundscapes that Robert Rich creates don't engage you as much as they engulf you. Shimmering waves of sound pour from the speakers, transforming both space and time." Keyboard Magazine

"Humidity" recommended to Robert Rich fans
Of Robert Rich's thirty-odd (and counting) CD catalog I can recommend this one to his listeners for its quality and variety. Good price for a 3-CD set and content is varied enough to satisfy those ambient 'Rich' cravings. This is the only place to hear these track samples and CD Baby will take good care of you.

a sonic masterpiece
the music in these three cd's is just like the great cd cover picture. airy ambient atmospheres and dark guitar passages combine perfectly into an imaginary and wonderful soundworld. totally recommended!
