Get some more ambient music in your life. Baltimore’s Rod Hamilton makes mesmerizing oceanic synth drone escapades. Hypnagogic marimba and xylophone melodies dance in an echo chamber, building layer upon layer, gradually morphing from quiet lullabies into a glistening orb of liquid energy. These aquatic excursions never dive too deep into slow drone territory, instead the playful percussion dances in myriad complimentary tones, evoking at times the bewildering activity of a tropical ecosystem. But these entracing minimalist compositions also find quiet, expansive moments, pregnant with cosmic significance, that elicit the profound reflection of a vibrant, illuminated sunset. Let go of your ego-centric mooring and drift down river with this new age crusader.
