Sparse and darkly beautiful in its use of sound, Ben Cox has created a work that envelopes the listener in a liquid embrace that ebbs and flows with organic and electronic beauty. Sparse and simple hints of melodies shimmer and float on stirring and fluid rivers of ambience.

On Water embraces the idea of music as an organized sonic experience. The pieces are not portraits; they are rather landscapes or still-lifes. These subtle, minimal treatments are reminiscent of Brian Eno’s “Music for Airports” and Eno and Jon Hassell’s “Fourth World” music.
