Tower of Light by Ross Harper
Restrained electronic music with an optional narrative
Like a curious role-playing exercise, Harper invites the listener to immerse themselves in the visual narrative depicted by his tasteful forms of Electronica and the gripping artworks of Iva Troj. Based on a series of short stories (written by Harper himself) the ten tracks that comprise Tower of Light develop further the fictional lead characters, Ambient Girl and Man of Light, first introduced on last year's Ambient Girl LP. It's certainly a little more reserved in spirit compared to his rollicking eFunk EP from earlier this year.
