Ron Boots - Acoustic shadows (FLAC)

Price: €11,90




All tracks composed, played and produced by Ron Boots.
Additional effect sounds by Kees Aerts on "The Unknown Soldier".

No, Ron Boots, Holland's leading electronic musician, has not created an acoustic album. An "acoustic shadow" is a phenomenon whereby a sound, such as the "thunder" of artillery during a battle, can be clearly heard far in this distance and yet be unheard by observers closer to the battle. For "Acoustic Shadows" Ron let himself be inspired by the war periods and the reasons for them. It struck Ron that there is never a good or sensible reason to start a war. "Acoustic Shadows" is a tribute to the soldiers that died in numerous useless battles.
It is almost three years ago since Ron has made his last solo-album "Area Movement" but it has been worthwhile waiting. "Acoustic Shadows" can be regarded as one of his best records. Ron's sound is, as always, rich and full of details. Every time you hear this music, you hear new things.
The almost symphonic "The Unknown Soldier" opens the cd. It reminds of his masterpiece "Tainted Bare Skin".
The tracks on "Acoustic Shadows" are accompanied with voices that tell stories about wars.
"The Battle Of The Somme" is one of the best pieces Ron had ever created. The sequences are absolutely great. After the somewhat atmospheric title track, Ron pumps things up somewhat on "Assault".
"Desolate Fields" fits its title because it is a little dark and slow composition.
"Dresden" ends the six pieces on the album in a typical "Ron Boots-way".
With "Acoustic Shadows" Ron has proven again to be one of the best electronic musicians of today.
