Hypnos/Soundscape HYP2020, CD
Humidity CDs are now sold out, but downloads remain available. Three live concerts on a three CD set, Humidity captures the trance-inducing intensity of Rich's dark ambient performances. Swirling abstract textures hover above deep throbbing tribal rhythms, while layered flutes and lap steel guitar blur against decomposed waves of rusting metal and shimmering light. This music merges harmonic sensibilities with Hermetic experimentalism, one of Rich's most uncompromising releases.
