Zoharum releases the new album of Rapoon, well known moniker of Robin Storney, created after his influencing experience with Zoviet France. Properly speaking, this album is a reissue because it was released as a limited CDR edition and now is remastered and reworked and seven minutes longer, so the "redux" of the title is a joke?
"sunshine in the parlour" opens this album with a piano line while "Days like rain" is a more regular, if this term means something for one of the innovators of this genre, ambient track familiar to everyone who like this artist's work. "Lost caress" is a quiet atmospheric track. "Dust rattle" is a lesson on how a bunch of small noises could be cinematic. "The outside shadow" is a lied for piano without voice. "We walked in diamonds" is movement for violin loop. "Breath of ages" is perhaps the more reminiscent track of the author's past while "a clock in every room" is a ritual ambient exercise of style. "The declining of lace" is a quiet soundscape for resonances while "Snow legend" is a soundscape made out of voices and small noise. "Pig vampires" continues the use of small violin samples when "a pale blue door" is almost religious in his evocative soundscapes and "she never came" close this album with a piano lines as the opening track.
Honestly speaking, Robin Storney continues his musical journey under his usual influences, inspiration and musical style but the quality of his work is really remarkable and enjoyable for all his fans. One of the masters of this genre. Unrankable.
