Originator of a unique concept 'sleep concerts' atmospheric music to dream to, Robert is now best known for his collaborations with Steve Roach. But, alone he proved to be much more explorative. These Auricle cassettes are early concert recordings featuring spacious synths, flutes and natural sounds that float subtly and scintillatingly, each a great value c90. Dreamscapes to get lost in!

    Gary Scott in Audion #5... it starts with beautiful sequencer of a seemingly simple nature that I’ve only heard Andreas Grosser do before. This is then replaced by water sounds and a superb synth flute, that reminds me of Stephan Micus at his melancholy best. The first side ends with a long section of synth of the "blanket of sound" type that Deuter and Iasos have been known to come up with - long notes, that seem to have no beginning and no end - beautiful. Other sections remind me of people as diverse as early Klaus Schulze, and Michael Brook.

Original covers #160-200 were unsold, basically because we no longer have a source for the original unbranded blank cassettes. After some customers requested that we do a CD reissue, we instead made a few CD-R copies (those were #193-200). So, what we have left is as follows...

Deleted. Last copies at our Discogs shop
