Boomkat Product Review:
This was a surprise, although Abrahams apparently released his debut album last year it slipped past my radars, so I can’t say I’ve heard of him before – but if this record is anything to go by I need to back track. Apparently Abrahams is a longtime associate of Brian Eno (appearing on several albums), and I can certainly hear echoes of that in his music, there are traces of Eno’s ambience and lightness but ‘Scene Memory’ is much more than a mere replication of ‘Music for Airports’ or ‘Apollo’. Abrahams blends piano, guitar and electronics to an almost euphoric effect, the record feels like you are walking in a dream, and has all the cinematic reference points of such. I can hear remnants of Vangelis’s matchless Blade Runner soundtrack, elements of Cliff Martinez and the haunting shadow of Harold Budd, but the blend of all these together is what makes ‘Scene Memory’ so interesting. It’s hard to find really consistent ambient records these days, but somehow Abrahams has sidestepped the trappings of ‘new age’ or over-experimentation and produced something which balances all the elements perfectly.
