Prog Reviewer
4 stars Polished, creative and resourceful as electronic music composer Robert Henke´s musical language is, it enriches itself between symphonic like structures, deep, yet minimal "Cosmic" atmospheres and field like recordings.

"Layering Buddha", 2006, a 10 tracks release, sets and compresses his music worlds into solid unities which rely mostly in its attractive, focused and detailed, yet abstract, perfectly threaded symphonic/drone like music composition.

To explain this work in some music genre's terms, besides its electronic symphonic nature it is relevant to mention a close connection to Brian Eno's "Discreet Music" (1975), but nevertheless this taken as a reference not a comparison due to the fact that this work has a unique personality which certainly holds no discretion, opposite to that, it is subtly explosive or piercing even menacing, more than once.

Hypnotic, intense, rich, vivid, very well written , performed and recorded.

****4.5 PA stars.
