Robert Rich saves himself from drowning in a sea of tantric whale songs by embracing nature's own intelligent design over New Age spirituality. Electric Ladder is a sprawling inward journey that wanders dangerously close to the soundtrack playing at your local rune shop, but a growing tension sprinkled with infinitely subtle rhythms resonates with the mechanics of space and time.
"Shadowline" transforms dark, sonic matter into plucky aural mulch. "Poppy Fields" sprouts into spacious, underwater bliss. "Sky Tunnel" is a winding thread of sound that transcends the stratosphere through a shower of miniature percussions. Rich does not embrace the ominous power of sound captured by artists, like Lustmord or Vidna Obmana, but finds beauty in the patterns that occur in nature. 3 stars
