Would like to thank Robert Rich for his kind Words a person admired for years
Craig Caudill as FM R IZ has delivered hours of diffuse and floating melodic electronic music in this release Chill Crate Rouge. Distant landscapes, from slow windswept wintry expanses to more urban clouds of rust, drifting orchestral tones sketching meandering harmonies.
Gentle, slightly brooding, softly edgy at times, never static but changing constantly and slowly, it reminds me pleasantly of some of my early work (like Trances & Drones) but with its own personal sonic palette and an even more elongated sense of time. It could be a stimulating soundtrack to creative mental activities like reading, writing, or visual arts. Thumbs up.
