"The Dream of 'I'" by Doug Wyatt (Instrumental Rock/Ambient Artist from San Francisco, California(CA))

Doug Wyatt's release, "The Dream of 'I'" is an amalgam of songs that take on different genres all seen through the eyes of an experienced electronic artist. The album is well recorded and produced, as it needs to be due to the large amounts of ambient and psychedelic sounds that Wyatt uses within his tunes. He has mastered the art of computer-aided music, and this is plainly heard throughout this entire album. On the track, "Thrill of the Chase" we get a toe-tapping beat underneath a spacey yet uplifting piano piece. Then on "Talking Points" one is presented with grittier, more industrial sounds over a thick, driving electric beat. These songs are then juxtaposed with others like "Artifacts and Fantasies" which contain numerous intricate psychedelic sounds, and are devoid of a traditional beat structure altogether. If your ears would appreciate a plethora of electronic instruments and sounds masterly interwoven, or you consider yourself an audiophile and just appreciate diverse sounds, then "The Dream of 'I'" is something you'll want to take in.
