Bill Nelson - Chance Encounters In The Garden Of Lights download mp3 album
Complete your Bill Nelson collection. Becoming aware of Bill Nelson's body of works via his musicianship on albums such as David Sylvian's 'Gone To Earth' has always left me rather frustrated. His sublime guitar work is often overshadowed on solo releases by studio noodling and uncool pop/rock synthesis. This album, however, makes up for all his scratchy solo output in one fell swoop.
Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights is a double instrumental album issued by Cocteau Records. It was Nelson's third consecutive non-vocal album released in less than 12 months.

Bill Nelson himself said of this music that it was the most personal and least demonstrative he had made, conceived in moments of intense stillness and musical vacuity. Not very many artists were doing ambient in the late 80s, just prior to the chillout post-rave era, but Nelson had always had an interest in the genre, paying homage to Erik Satie, who arguably conceived the genre on Furniture Music. Often clocking in at under two minutes, the 63 tracks on this collection are an accumulation of discreet pearls, vivid but fleeting musical sketches whose titles (Revolving Globes, Staircase.
