One of my favorite ambient cd's, from my favorite year in electronic music (which is also when i graduated from high school), released on my favorite ambient label of all time... Can it get any more meaningful to me?! No it can't.
This is analog ambient to max. "Virtual Wake" is the introduction and the welcome to the mind of Dominic Woosey at the time. In the years 1993-1995 Dominic Woosey had this scientific sound to his music, listening like it was constructed in a lab, element by element. Sometimes like a mad scientist, more like a pilot taking us through the stars, Dominic at the time was pioneering the ambiant scene with his array of equipment and his use of space sounds. While a Basic Channel circa the same time would be for the dance floor, "Rivers of Black Ice" is the same idea in theory but for the couch in a dark room made by the mad keyboard scientist Woosey for music heads that wanted to go to other planets. Minimal in structure but adding acid drenched in echos, piercing melody, growling basses, this track will impress any analog old school techno or ambient head. This is one of those long tracks that you play, it zones you out then (nearing 19 minutes) the full peak comes out and you start the track over immediately asking yourself "wow! how did it get there!" and want to take the trip all over again. About as powerful a song and as detailed techno as Robert Leiner has done. "Diffusion" suprisingly is actually my most favorite track on here though. I had this song on a few compilations in 1994/1995. It's gentleness and beauty to drift off to sleep to has always been a personal favorite and a excellent way to end the album (even if it's too soft to follow "Rivers of Black Ice". If you were drfting through the stars this is the song that would be your soundtrack. In 1994 i saw this cd in the rack, i didn't have enough money to buy it, i came back a week later it was gone. It was my most wanted until 2003 when i got a sealed copy from a private seller.
