Melchior, Letha Rodman – “Shimmering Ghost” – [Siltbreeze Records]
Although her physical being passed in September of 2014, Letha Rodman Melchior’s (wife of Dan) spirit shimmers on in this aptly titled posthumous release. Described as electronic ambience, the first side contains more experimental sounds that call to mind outer space and other realms. Side B is much more ambient and comforting, with bells and voices (male and female) speaking words, and some harps and theremin sound-alikes. Melchior’s last compositions are indeed transcendent.
