Memories and Meditations

By Mark Barker, December 2010


This is Graham Spence's eleventh solo album, and from the opening note the Journey begins. As the title suggests, the listener is invited into Meditations and retrospective thoughts. Throughout, the album is a mix of music and sound sculpting, weaving between sequences, ambient layers and very occasionally layed-back rock.

 

This is yet another recording to surely reinforce the distinction of Spence's status as one of the UKs foremost recording synthesizer artists.
