Description

Rubaiyat on CD

After being introduced to David Gerard's music by my friend David Borden a couple of years ago, I have listened to each new album as soon as it was released. Gerard's growth as a composer is evidenced in each new release, and 'Rubaiyat' is no exception. His subtle use of electronic sounds to create slowly shifting aural landscapes is deftly done. The selections on 'Rubaiyat' are longer than on previous albums and allow Gerard more room to fold sounds in, out, around, and through one another. And here, at least for me, he saves the best for last in 'Isotropic', which adds an harmonic and percussive push that seems to drive the music along, even though the actual pace is unhurried. 'Rubaiyat' feels like a culmination of that which has gone before, and I wonder what new and more complex things Gerard has up his sleeve? In the meantime, I suggest you grab a loaf of bread, a jug of wine, find a comfortable place to relax and enjoy 'Rubaiyat.' I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
