about

Robert Scott Thompson’s work in the area of computer music is largely oriented toward high modernism in the tradition of the founders and pioneers of the field such as Pierre Schaeffer, Stockhausen and Xenakis. His work is also informed by the naturalistic soundscape and importantly notions of contemporary expressions in chamber and orchestral music. Thompson’s aesthetics attempts to blend and meld the real and imaginary into a musical context that invites deep listening and engagement in the listener. The music – the tonality, sonority, transformation of materials – is the primary focus rather than the outworking of a specific technique or technology. In recent years Thompson has become an adherent of the techniques of ambisonic spatialization and increasingly creates work that is based in this approach to both multi-channel and stereophonic presentation.

This recording is different from the one containing the two versions of the title track - Of Natural Magic and the Breathing of Trees. The other recording, robert-scott-thompson.bandcamp.com/album/of-natural-magic-and-the-breathing-of-trees features two different versions of this composition (and different mixes) and would be of interest to collectors.
