Robert Scott Thompson is an electroacoustic composer who has labored in obscurity for years--releasing a large number of works in a surprising number of genres. Two Thompson releases, "The Silent Shore" and "Frontier", gave his music wider distribution and opened his talent up to a larger group of ambient aficionados. The two discs were fabulously diverse displays of ambience, dark and light. To my mind, "The Silent Shore" is one of the finest ambient releases of the 1990s, and "Frontier" was a more than worthy follow-up. Thompson's music is extremely cerebral and academic, fitting into genre definitions quite tenuously. The totality of his work may not be to a particular listener’s tastes every time, but one can always be sure Thompson is treading new territories, experimenting with sound, continuously moving forward.
