Things You Already Know - Chris Campbell's personal soundscape
Composer Chris Campbell has created an album of deeply personal music. Campbell's carefully constructed soundcapes use a variety of sources -- acoustic instruments, electronics, found objects, and home-made instruments. The result is an intriguing journey for the ear. Campbell's music manages to hover between contemporary classical music and electronica without fully landing in either camp.
And that's what keeps it interesting. It's music that almost reminds me of something I've heard before, but I can't quite place it -- so I just have to keep listening.
