I’m not familiar with this Rudi Arapahoe feller but Phil assures me he’s very good and rarely puts anything out, so I’m intrigued. On this little CD here (part of Hibernate’s excellent 3” CD postcard series) he gets together with five friends, including the esteemed Danny Norbury on cello, for five short pieces of minimal neoclassical type stuff interwoven with electronics, synthesizers and field recordings.
Some tracks, such as the title piece, have some ethereal cooing female voices rubbing up against gliding synths and ominous rumbles, with the ever-present piano taking a back seat, while elsewhere the focus is on slow Harold Budd-esque piano melodies and the closing piece ‘Endgames’ descends into a slow and apparently improvised collection of patient piano plinks and plonks, as if to round off a collection of organised beauty with a gentle return to the esoteric chaos of real life. Really lovely stuff, as I’ve come to expect from this series.
