 Old-fashioned Electronica September 4, 2016 By W. Murphy (Sacramento, CA) See All My Reviews "Dresher is a recent find for me, but he's been around awhile. The earliest work of his that I have is copyrighted 1977, and the most recent is 2004. His earlier works, like this Starkland CD from 1995, hark back to the first wave of electronic music, when composers explored the contrasting sounds available from their synthesizers, and enjoyed the differences without worrying much about tunes. Long tonal flows and rhythmic intervals predominate. At times this disc could be the rich and atmospheric soundtrack for a scifi movie. I like the genre, and its distance from 'conventional' music."
