|Destined to be one of Robert Scott Thompson’s most sought after recordings of 1990’s, AETHER is over 70 minutes in duration and contains 13 tracks. The music, while entirely instrumental, blends contemporary pop and alternative styles with ambient and avant-garde music sensibilities. AETHER presents instrumental music very much in keeping with the style of avant-garde pop/vocal music that can be found on some of Thompson’s other recordings such as "Kissing the Emptiness."
Fans of Bowie, Bryan Ferry, Dead Can Dance, Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel and similar artists will find much to admire on this disc. The music ranges from the neo-Gothic polyrhythmic "Evening Star" to the crisp electronica of "Atmosphere" to the sublime melodies of "Antrim." Brilliantly recorded in high-definition audio. AETHER will find a significant place among the new-age, ambient and contemporary instrumental CDs of note.
Newly re-mastered in 2007 in updated packaging.
