Various Artists - Dali: The Endless Enigma

Artist: Stearns, Huygen, Walter Holland,
Djam Karet, Loren Nerell, Klaus Schulze,
Bo Tomlyn, Steve Roach, Robert Rich

P: 1990
This is a truly great, moody, mixed up album. I bought it because I am a great fan of Steve Roach, who has the last tracks. All the other artists are great, each track a different aural interpretation of a different Dali painting. It's like looking at Dali through headphones. Try getting a book with images by Dali, and looking at the pictures while listening to the music composed for each one. Moody, creepy, raucaus, dreamy, eclectic...Dali.

Vidna Obmana - Crossing the Trail

Artist: Vidna Obmana
P: 1998
This is a collaboration with Steve Roach and Jeff Pearce.
The most amazing thing about this beautiful work of art is that minimal tribal components are woven into a constantly evolving cascade of synth-orchestral textures and natural sounds (no, not the flute over waterfall routine!) to draw a listener into a meditative yet fully aware state of relaxation and focused concentration. Whereas much of Dirk's (Vidna's) vast volume of work is based on loops and drones, Crossing the Trail singularly succeeds in elevating the slow/barely perceivably structured pieces that flow with emotion and remain in memory despite a dearth of melody. This CD is a landmark of depth, darkness and light that is perfect for studying, relaxing or dissecting. I have many of Vidna Obmana's CDs and, though I enjoy them all, this work remains my favorite, an expansive yet intimate, cold yet enveloping, majestic yet delicate soundscape that raises the bar for what is possible from this sort of ambient music. I needn't comment on the pieces separately because the entire CD is one seamless whole, incapable of being wrenched apart. Every thing I listen to in this genre gets rated according to the perfection of Crossing the Trail.

Vidna Obmana - Subterranean Collective

Artist: Vidna Obmana
P: 2001
This double CD contains three recordings from the mid 1990s, Echoing Delight, Parallel Flaming, and The Spiritual Bonding. They find Serries in a transition period between abstract space music and techno-tribal trance works. A disciple of Steve Roach, Obmana's career generally tracks the evolution of the American synthesist. Adding to the parallels, Roach also appears on the collection, along with Robert Rich and Alio Die. Vidna Obmana is Serbo-Croatian for "optical illusion"; in his music, Serries conjures the audio equivalent of all manner of sensory distortions/legerdemain. Synthesizers create infinite glissandos wrapped around rhythms that range from tribal rituals to ominous zombie dances. Serries has a slightly more melodic sensibility than Roach, albeit melodies that are stretched out over time. Sometimes serene, often disturbing and threatening, the title Subterranean Collective, might be aptly extended to Subterranean Collective Consciousness as Obmana explores a psychological zone beneath the surface.

Vidna Obmana - The Surreal Sanctuary

Artist: Vidna Obmana
P: 2001
Throughout his historic career in electronic sound, Vidna Obmana has always created music dealing with the range of mood, being and emotion. From the emptiness and desolation of "Acqua" to the bittersweet meloncholy of "Mellow At Heart"; the strength and sureness of "Forest Arrow" and the contemplative introspection of "Float Through Nights", Vidna Obmana aptly conveyes his state of existence from the headings between these four points on the compass of feelings. On the latest Vidna Obmana CD: The Surreal Sanctuary, he rolls out a remarkable new map, the kind used by adventurous travellers to move across stricken borders, through unusual terrain and down lost highways. Still present are the cerebral qualities of his past recordings, only now they are joined by a strong sense of place and movement in four dimensions. The pieces evolve slowly often fading one into the next. The album is smooth, a soundworld of shifting drones and deep timbres. The contemplative pacing of the dark harmonies is not meant to relax or reassure. Quite the opposite. The music on this album is meant to evoke a desolate, forboding place. As with any kind of travel to exotic lands, the emotions here stem from the uncertainty of the strange environment. Guiding us through this eerie land is Vidna Obmana. One can imagine him a few paces ahead, leading us through the landscape; with fog so dense we follow the mere sound of his overtone flute. In addition to playing several varieties of Fujara, Vidna Obmana also utilizes: sampler, synthesizers, electric guitar, harmonica, feedback and studio processing devices as well as the collaborative efforts of Steve Roach on guitar, bassist Joris De Backer and the overtone singing of Jim Cole. When these sources are combined and shaped by Vidna Obmana, two noticable regions are created out of the seven lengthy tracks. Much like the soundtrack work of Howard Shore, Vidna Obmana's music on The Surreal Sanctuary deals with tension but no release (at least not until volume two). During the overture to any Cronenberg movie, Shore's music bestows upon us a sense that something singular is about to unfold, a story that will make us uneasy, an experience we need to brace against. It may be best to describe The Surreal Sanctuary in these kinds of terms... an experience you undergo, something descended into, a world that has slipped over us.
