Album Review

an MLO Production – “Io” – [Rising High]

Kai Sync   6/1/2016   A Library, CD



A rare 1994 release with ambient music from an MLO Production for the movie Io. It initially sounded like an Eno Apollo copycat album until I realized it was from about the same time period of the golden age of ambient music. As such this release was very new and exciting in the nineties. Today ambient music has been watered down by all the Brian Eno wannabes so the impact from this music sadly is not there anymore. Anyway, it has sweeping synth drones resonating with other landscaping tonalities. This album was released by Rising High, a highly influential rave, techno and ambient record label that is now defunct. Anyway, to quote Brian Eno: “Ambient music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting.” This album fits that description.
