Rapoon biography
Rapoon is the solo project of Zoviet France co-founder and Visual Artist Robin Storey. Born in 1955 in Cumbria, England, he took influences from many Krautrock artists of the 70's and from Composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen. In 1980 he would co-found the massively influential Industrial/Ambient group Zoviet France. He would remain a member until 1992. The same year he released the first Rapoon album entitled Dream Circle.

The sound of Rapoon is of an Ambient, and somewhat Abstract nature, often with ethnic and sometimes rhythmic touches.

Stray
Rapoon Progressive Electronic

Review by admireArt

— First review of this album —
4 stars The voice electric.

Rapoon's 2012 "Stray" focuses on the possiblities of the human voice (electronically processed, of course) to supply all kind of different "environments" which usually they do not cover, besides choral arrangements, like instruments more than "singing" voices alone.

The recorded results do not rely solely on this, which makes the whole experience, twice delightful. "Stray" is masterfully written, composition wise and so are its arrangements, which although "minimal" efficiently create all kind of "human/non-human" landscapes.

This album is close to the "ambiental" tagging but not subdued by it. It can turn out to be quiet disturbing also. The solitude and "alien" nature it depicts, is so disturbing because it hits close to any human being's fears and expectations but mainly because they end up sounding so deeply human, thus their transparent beauty.

Between earthly landcapes and the dirty industrial factories, there we are, us the top of the food chain, corrupting our planet, and yet we are just crumbs on the cosmic table!

****4 "Slow-paced and dynamic, deep/progressive electronics" PA stars.

PD. By the way, this is not an EP/SINGLE/BOXSET/PROMO/"Payola" or whatever, just a "normal" CD.

Conduits And Estuaries
Rapoon Progressive Electronic

Review by admireArt

5 stars A metamorphical symphony of industrial indo/raga electronics.

Rapoon´s 2014 album "Conduits And Estuaries" is a 43+ minutes long, single composition, divided in six movements or sections, connected throughly.

The symphonic reference not only applies to its structure, parts of it movements do contain symphonic passages with its inherent instrumentation (or emulators). All of Rapoon's musical learnings, findings, goings and comings, led eventually to a unique self-owned musical language.

As always in his works, slow-paced does not mean sticking to a single point or structure, be it riff or melody. As always his songwriting is dynamic, constantly creative, and on this one especially, totally refined.

In "Conduits And Estuaries" once you let yourself go, it does not let you go away. It is indo/raga, as it is "industrial", as it is a "waterfall", to then turn into a mass, or a symphony, and then into a dance, and then into the obscure, as into the light, and into a hundred worlds, by the minute..... and you are inside!

One of the most attractive and perfectly achieved attributes this album holds, is the perfect juxtapositioning of highly opposite styles without becoming "decadent". Opposite to that, his music proposal sounds fresh as new, and above everything else, marks a unique tendency, which eventually, as in Art hystory, could become a style. And that my friends is the "mark" of geniuses! In any field of action.

*****5 "Flawless, hypnotic, haunting, attractive, highly creative and UNIQUE, Progressive Electronic music" PA stars.

One for all!

To West And Blue
Rapoon Progressive Electronic

Review by admireArt

— First review of this album —
4 stars "Not a reissue, not a compilation, but something completely new". "To West and Blue", 2013. -:RAPOON's Bandcamp page.

I would not complain or ask why it is in the EPs/BOXSets category, the Gods know why. Robin Storey a.k.a RAPOON, thinks otherwise.

Anyway, "To West and Blue" in his own words, is a recreation of his childhood's land by the sea in the U.K. This musical recreation, because of the same, moves toward the "ambiental/electronics" which deal directly with the memory of things and images gone, lost or found again.

His usual experimental tone encompasses the 7 unconnected songs. Each song has its own personality, travelling between dream-like, "cosmic", choral and tribal electronics, portraying a different environment or memory or place.

The work as a whole is haunting, creative and rich in its minimalism, but not condescending to be liked or go "mainstream", yet despite been quiet personal, it is entirely UNIVERSAL.

Opposite to what Bandcamp's page depicts, "as not for everyone's taste", I think otherwise. This work will easily fulfill any PROG/Electronic follower's expectations.

****4 "daring, unique, subtle and creative" PA stars.

Enjoy today, tomorrow never knows!

What Do You Suppose? (The Alien Question)
Rapoon Progressive Electronic

Review by admireArt

— First review of this album —
4 stars Electronic World Music of an "Alien" nature.

It is so refreshing to find out that there are electronic musicians who for starters do not sound like Tangerine Dream or Klauz Schulze or intend to do so. Really! So refreshing!

UK´s Robin Storey a.k.a. RAPOON, Zoviet France co-founder, has a vast solo discography. His PA section, although incredibly well updated and documented, still is missing some of his albums.

Anyway! To put this prog/electronic musician in circulation here in PA (beyond Zoviet France), I have chosen the album I have been listening to more closely and inadvertently (it is number one in my i-pod), "What Do You Suppose? (The Alien Question), 1999.

Well, this album is slow paced and minimalistic (the so loved prog-attributes). Blending "modern" electronic (Cosmic) sounds (no pulses), with native like percussions from time to time in perfect synchronicity and balance. But mainly sharing its space and time, here and there, with a voice (in-off) of a conference about the "famous" Alien Conspiracy Theory (which of course as in their movies, it all happens in the good-ol' USA).

As a listening experience it requires your attention, no catchy riffs or hooks (besides your personal opinion on this theory). It flows freely and naturally, but at a distant volume. I repeat, to enjoy it fully, "headphones" or "focused attention" are required.

In addition, I myself enjoy so much this careleesness and freedom in attitude, in both its songwriting and marketing to become "mainstream".

But the truth is, as always, that this album is not exactly for every prog-audiophile. Therefore I address mainly the "Electronic" follower who are fed-up (as myself), of TD or Schulze imitators, and those probably will have a field trip with it!

****4 "refreshing, minimaltic and deep" PA stars.
