A stunning album of looped Frippertronics and electronics, in the vein of the classic Fripp & Eno No Pussyfooting collaboration. Recorded live from a past life. Awash in the hypnotic looping structures of Robert Fripp's guitar soundscapes, Jeffrey Fayman adds an opulent cinematic brilliance to the proceedings, creating an intense and dramatic vision of a future rich in the heritage of Fripp's past. Nine years in the making, A Temple In The Clouds is a unique collaboration between one of rock's most important and influential guitarists and a contemporary cinematic composer. Fripp's contribution of two hours worth of treated guitar work (his trademark "Frippertronics") formed the basis for Fayman's layering of interwoven electronic soundscapes. Focusing on the subtleties and slight shifts in overtones and harmonics, Fayman & Fripp have created a dynamic musical kaleidoscope, ever changing and intrinsically radiant in each sonic fractal.

The overall mood of this CD fits nicely with the Projekt catalog, and it is not hard to see why Fayman & Fripp went with Projekt instead of Fripp's regular outlets. No, this isn't No Pussyfooting II or Evening Star II, but it is an intense, layered CD that belongs in your collection if you like your ambient with a little touch of darkness.
The performances are fascinating and subtle, inspiring and beautiful....it harkens back to the wonderful Fripp-Brian Eno collaborations within this genre of art.
This release though is highly recommended for those of you who enjoy listening to something different but still within a "passive" mode.
Great job, as always, Robert!!
