 Now available :: Robert Davies - WHAT THE MOON REVEALS
 
 
Over the years Robert Davies has created a considerable reputation for his work in the realm of lush and dreamy pastoral ambient. Music that transports the listener to various aspects of an idyllic natural world, and sometimes to the supernatural.
A music that tends towards the deeply immersive and refreshingly relaxing. On What The Moon Reveals, Davies continues this journey, painting hypnotic sonic portraits of intimate evening landscapes, and creating a series of memorable ambient reveries. It is a tour de force of sustained ambient artistry.


track 3

ROBERT DAVIES : Arboreal

Arboreal spins a gossamer web of natural field recordings and delicate synthesiser pads that will both entrance and transport the listener to a secluded earthly sanctuary ... a sonic Eden.
Ambient at its very best.

"Appearances is their second collaborative composition, building upon the solid foundations of Distant Shadows from Spring 2011.
