As Lonely As Dave Bowman
As Lonely As Dave Bowman is named after the astronaut in Kubrick/Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Unlike Sam’s work in Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Dave Bowman is full-on electronic music: droning space, wordless drift with long suspended passages. It touches the edges of isolation and glacial solitude, with a discernible warm human core. Epic expanses, satellite flybys, vast open textures, serene ambient moments, and warmer hues of sparse remoteness are barren, yet without leaving the listener abandoned. Think of it as drone insulation rather than drone isolation.
