Richard Gürtler As usual for Robert Davies, his sound sculptings are rather minimal, but enormously effective when it comes to capturing a deeply relieving and magnificently auralscaping atmosphere with excellently balanced lighter and darker subtleties. And always having that distinctive earthy touch for easy recognition of his signature sound. This gifted virtuoso, based in Ithaca, New York, is definitely one of the best kept secrets on the drone ambient scene!!!

Arboreal spins a gossamer web of natural field recordings and delicate synthesiser pads that will both entrance and transport the listener to a secluded earthly sanctuary, a sonic Eden, an arbor of pastoral dreams. Masterfully crafted, subtly detailed, and serenely beautiful, this is ambient music at its very best.
