Album Review

Radio Free Clear Light – “Time and Other Disturbances” – [Black Note Music]

Kai Sync   5/25/2016   A Library, CD



Radio Free Clear Light from San Francisco started as an open collective of like minded artists attending a Bardo training session with the common interest to develop music that invokes various mental moods and states with pure music performances. Participation is still open for anyone interested. RFCL is very active with new music posted weekly. This album has a lot of nods towards Orb — kind of like Dr. Patterson would summon his crew and tell them that this time they should make serious music instead of prankster looping. As such the material has a lot of ambient chill loop elements with rhythmic variations combined with various other sonic material building abstractions that should trigger various altered states of mind – depending on individual interpretations. It definitely does put the mind in an coherent mode unlike intelligent muzak played at progressive airports. I would call this a sonic noir journey in gaps between mental moments to be fair to the Bardo notion.
