"Discreet" is music from a different level, dimension, realm and universe. As usual Robert G. Rough has maintained a sustainable level of high-quality electro-acoustic release that were fitting of the drone, ambient and concrete genre tags. However, he approaches music not just as an always-challenging composer and performer, but as an ever-experimenting sound artist as well. In this work you will enjoy acoustic, raw, virtual and organic sounds as they interact with all kinds of audio machinery, eventually building a very intimate yet otherworldly aural landscape which is so carefully considered and constructed that you feel as if your ears have additional senses attributed to them. I perceive it as a complex organic figure, slowly unfolding, following its own geometric logic, firmly based in its own realism. Yet, at the same time, the inner path of this album feels closer to the pure and “discreet” irrational labyrinth of sound which its title wish to suggest. Something like a hypnotized organic entity, fed by whatever Robert’s inspirational universe has decided to build for you.
