Leo Abrahams - Scene Memory [Bip_hop - 2006]

The title of Scene memory is very apt for this collection of guitar mood pieces, which dips into drifting and often melancholy sound scapes, literal linking  a memory of a scene or event to one’s mind. Leo Abrahams has worked with Brian Eno among others, and this clearly has the air and quality of some of eno’s work, But Abrahams has managed to cast his own beautiful and poignant light upon these tracks .

It’s  all been created  purely with the guitar and feeding it through various effects peddles to offer up: heat hazed vista of sound, melodic oceans drifts, bubbling guitar cords as if coming to the surfaces of some vast  silver mystical lake, vast shimmering forest of tones, caughting  the soothing breeze over desert scapes, or lulling childhood harmonics. Each track painting its own different picture and shade ,with offten varied pace, but always with an ear on the melodic sheen. Both charming beautiful and haunting, Abrahams manages to milk a great number of tones pitches and audio colours from his instruments. The track length never moving much above the five minute mark.

A truly  enjoyable collection of sound works, by clearly a master of his instrument and ambient craft. With out doubt one for all those who enjoyed well played and thought out mood music. Splendid stuff really.
