For me, this piece evokes ASMR (Autonomous sensory meridian response) with its incredible high fidelity percussive elements and clean polyrhythms. It makes me feel like I am gently being slapped to wake up and pay attention. Oskar Sala
3:00 - 4:56
Oskar Sala built an instrument called the Trautonium with Friedrich Trautwein. Though it is a monophonic instrument, it is incredibly complex. I am inspired by his ability to pull sophisticated and playful sounds out of it. I highly recommend looking up videos and pictures of this instrument. This is from Elektronische Tanzsuite.

I really want to see a figure skating performance to this piece. It is earnest and cinematic. There are evocative subtle sounds in the background that provoke curiosity.
Part IV Expanding into the universe
7:04 - 9:11
This piece motivates a journey inward. Focused, reflective and introspective.
9:12 - 9:52
Analog synthesis sound design at its finest! I feel like I am getting to follow a drops journey down a drain.
Celestial Soda Pop

This piece makes me feel like I am in a montage! I like how clean and punctuated the rhythm is.
14:20 - 21: 52
I enjoy the mix of this piece, each sound seems to perfectly have its place in a bed of sounds.
21:53 - 24: 33
I am inspired by the counterpoint and arrangement. It is orchestral in way the voices hand off the theme.
24:34 - 28:40
So many incredible sounds, such beauty and complexity in the composition. I am also particularly fond of this piece because a lot of it was made with a Buchla 200. David Behrman
On the other ocean
28:41 - 33:51
The way the swells and the harmonies line up with the portamento lines are so satisfying! It feels like each part is working hard and courteously to mold together and create something larger. I also appreciate the blending of acoustic instruments with electronic instruments.
33:56 - 36:55
His music feels timeless. Underwater pilgrimage. Cool Maritime
36:56 - 38:46
I love how this piece plays with tape delay. It sounds like colossal foot steps. Donato Dozzy
This reminds me of one my favorite traditional mbira songs. It always stops me in my tasks and I can only listen.
Rainbow in curved air
I once read that TR would practice playing the same 4 fingers on the piano for months and months on end. I am inspired by his patience and discipline. Amazing counterpoint and sense of rhythm changing over time. Suzanne Ciani
The first wave
48:18 - 53:00
I am always excited by the rise and fall of melodic lines in this piece. It feels like you are riding a wind slide.
53:04 - 55:36
The brightness of the tones in this piece massage my ears! I am very fond of composing on EML synthesizers. I love the filter on those synthesizers.
55:37 - 58:15
For the longest time I thought this was a human voice. I am very inspired by her ability to emote through such a complex electronic instrument.The dynamics are perfect. Raymond Scott

So playful. Whimsical. Perfect for drifting off into dreamtime.
