There is a thread running through all of Davies' work, it can perhaps best be named phantasy. Song titles signify these very visual, phantastic worlds, and the music moves us through them as in a dream. We drift, transfixed, within uncertain landscapes suffused with evolving visions, shadows, and apparitions. The land of faerie, of phantoms, and of the unconscious. Robert's music is founded in this subterranean, subconscious realm, and is grounded with deep drones that gently weave a sombre and mysterious web of enveloping sound through which we return to something more primal, but also to something more magical.
A geography of memory is not a remembering, it is a mapping ... the mapping of a terrain. This is a cloudy dreamscape of innumerable hidden pathways and intriguing solitary recesses; and it is home to the vast realm of the immemorial that flows beneath our experience like a great, dark river. Immerse yourself in this river with Geography of Memory.
