Intruding on a Silence

RELAXING and ENJOYABLE. Colin Chin's CD Intruding on a Silence is far from an intrusion.  It's  a perfect picture of Jim Fisher, sitting at his desk on a spring day, a gentle breeze coming through the open window, and this music wafting through the house. All is right with the world....

Chin, a talented composer, synthesist  and guitarist, presents soft tones that leave you in peace. The electronic tunes carry a melody which you can hum along to and carry throughout the day.

I'm not usually drawn to new age or electronic music, but I enjoyed this. The list of tunes on the CD include:

  • In Heaven's Wake
  • Ayers Rock
  • Farewell to Innocence
  • The Belly of the Beast
  • Point of  Egression
  • A March Through the Queens Garden
  • In Search of Things Lost
  • Love Sonnet
  • The Alluvial Plains
All worth a listen. 

Released in 1990 on the Narada Mystique label. Chin's work is mostly from the 80s and 90s.
