“This is expressive music, and anyone who likes computer music will want to hear it. Anybody who thinks they know computer music and doesn't like it, should hear it.”

- American Record Guide

"Shadow Gazing involves some of the most original and advanced computer music produced to date.”

- CD Spectrum

“The sounds Robert Scott Thompson creates for his computer music have a tactile feeling that is usually missing from digitally synthesized sound. (All pieces)...have something to say, something new for the ear. ...the effect can be haunting, as if we are hearing ghostly echoes of something lost. This is expressive music, and anyone who likes computer music will want to hear it. Anybody who thinks they know computer music and doesn’t like it, should hear it.”

– American Record Guide

Shadow Gazing takes the listener through seven distinct journeys in sound. Thompson's work encompasses many aspects of composition from algorithmic strategies to acousmatic soundscapes. Overall, the most satisfying of the works are those which involve long, flowing sections of ebbing dynamics and densities such as the title track and RuST. Although this CD represents music composed between 1984 and 1994, a common thread of quality is present throughout.

– Chris Meloche

A 7-track, 72-minute suite of computer music composed by ambient musician extraordinaire Robert Scott Thompson. Shadow Gazing was recorded over an 8 year period and involves some of the most original and advanced computer music produced to date. This release sounds warm, unlike many other computer-music releases which sound as though no human involvement was part of the project. Recommended for fans of ambient, electronica and computer music worldwide.
