Over the last two decades, Minneapolis based composer Scott L. Miller's work has increasingly been engaged with ambient sound and music informed and inspired by the environment. This recording, "Raba," is a byproduct of this artistic direction. Initially conceived as a straight forward retrospective of Miller's work in the ambient realm, the project has since evolved into a chronicle of his collaborations with performers Ensemble U: flutist Laura Cocks, and guitarist Daniel Lippel as well as video artists Ted Moore, Mark Zaki, Rosemary Williams, Ron Gregg, and Paul Clipson. In addition to the audio recording, a limited edition video is available including premiere video content for all but one of the works, created especially for this release. Not unlike one's experience truly being inside and hearing the sounds of nature, listening to this entire recording slows our perception to a slower rate of change. Within this context, we can hear the drastically different sound worlds between the individual pieces. Scott Miller is "a true force on the avant-ambient scene" (Classical-Modern Review) and "inspiring real hope & optimism for the future of electroacoustic music" (5against4)
