Spanish ambient guitarist Lucho Gonzalez Suarez, who records as Lucho Ripley, deals in glistening tones and shimmering reverb cascading around dreamy melodies and majestic arpeggios. The sound may not be groundbreaking, but one does not hear a great deal of it these days and he spins it with passion and skill. He follows up his full-length debut Megablast with a very nice 3-track EP on Audio Gourmet called Spirit of Wonder in which he continues to delight along the same lines.
This 3 track EP captures a spirit of wonder as you listen, the idea behind most Ambient music. There is no pretense or overriding concept behind - just beautiful guitar-led Ambient music executed to a very high standard. The accompanying artwork is an open-source water colour image to reflect the work of J.M.W Turner with the blue tones mirroring that of the sea and sky.
