Album Review

Behrman, David – “On The Other Ocean” – [Lovely Music Ltd.]

selector   2/12/2014   A Library, CD

Two 20 minute sleepy tracks by long-time electronic music guru David Behrman. Synth accompanied by flute and bassoon (Side 1), cello (Side 2), and a microcomputer, the Kim-1. The Kim-1 was used to sense the order and timing of pitches played and send harmony-changing messages to the synth.

Beautiful stuff, calming and sad. Listening, it feels, like a film soundtrack for a funeral scene where where we’re watching grief, or where we’re seeing the aftermath of a disastrous battle, or maybe it’s the music backing to a visual discovery documentary where we are seeing a long low fly-over shot of some ecosystem disaster.
