Many thanks for the comments, Chris. Great that you are enjoying them.

I find Robert's work to be quite addictive ... it is just so listenable and consistent in its mood and quality.
He's one of those artists where if you like one album you will probably like the rest of them.
You have been warned.  :)

I just put his recent Forgotten Harbors release up on Bandcamp.
And will add more things as time goes by.

Always sad to see someone go at such a young age.   :(
I've bought a few of his synths over the years. Fascinating, but I did find their sound to be fairly similar, probably due to their sample sets.

It's a long, slowly developing movie. A bit of a 2001 mood in places. Don't expect non-stop action. Yep, overlook the science and just enjoy the mood, characters, sets and cinematography.
We enjoyed it.

This album has taken on a whole new meaning for me now that I know what Saul really intended.

Thanks, Joe !
We have had some great response for Middle Distance.
It's an album that grew on me more and more the more I listened to it.

Thanks for picking it up Chris. Appreciate it.
And you know, I really like Bandcamp too. It's great for buyers and artists. Consistent interface and it's quick and easy.
I will be putting more of the recent DataObscura releases up. But it takes time.


Full Circle is a collection of nine intricate and absorbing ambient explorations that show
APK at his very best. Subtle rhythms, beautiful compositions rich with details, and a
yearnng melodic structure that speaks volumes. A work that will delight again and again.
This one is a little different ... but the samples will tell you a lot more than any words we
can say, so please check them out.

The album is available as a physical CDr release or as a download (320kbs MP3).

A slightly more expensive download is also available on the new DataObscura Bandcamp
site for those who want lossless. You can stream the first 5 tracks.

There is a player with a full set of samples and tracklist here on the purchase page:
TCR - Full Circle @ DataObscura

Please do have a listen.

Comments always welcome.
Many thanks.


Yes, we deleted the abusive posts.
Please don't take any offense that we deleted your post with them. You were right to point out the problem.
The el culto thread is still there, just farther down than you were looking. Remember it got bumped up because of the posts, so went back down when we deleted them.

"I hope"  -   ;D

Yep Pete, I always thought it odd that people put up albums on Bandcamp and let the whole thing be listened to. Quality seems to be around 128kbs mp3, so pretty good. It can be streamed whenever you want to hear it, or you can easily capture the stream and have a free copy of it.

Of course, Bandcamp capitalize on this a bit by offering, for a monthy fee of $10, to let you choose which tracks are streamable. Which is presumably a good option for labels and artists who sell well.

But another option is to make some tracks bonus tracks, so they don't show in the track list and can't be streamed, but will be in the download. This seems an obvious thing to do if you don't want people to be able to stream the whole album. Just mention the tracks in your blurb just beneath the track listing so people know what's on the complete album.

Being English and into classical for much of my early years I was brought up on The Lark and the wonderful Tallis Fantasia. Beautiful pieces. Great to hear them mentioned. Should be on everyone's menu. 

That is expensive, and a large run for a limited edition (these days). And you know there are another 250 because they would have got 1,000. Kinda odd.
