4 stars Robert Rich started out his career as a drone-artist. He created so-called sleep-concerts.

This (his second) release is a mix of new age and ambient music, inspired by the rainforest. It's really calm and mesmerizing, and Robert Rich makes use of electronic (synths) and acoustic (flutes, percussion) instruments. On top of that, he uses a variety of field recordings.

The result is very dreamy, atmospheric and sometimes dark music, with melodic and rhythmic themes going hand in hand. Until now, I hadn't heard of him before, but the music is of such beauty and splendour that I must check out his other albums.

The song The Raining Room is dedicated to russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky. In future releases Rober Rich will often dedicate songs to great artists like Dalí en Gaudí etc.
