Monday, August 8, 2016. Patrick Gleeson - Rainbow Delta (1982). Synths here, there, and everywhere from American composer Patrick Gleeson. I'll avoid using words like "arpeggiating," "pulsing," and the like (except I just did, shit!) and just say that as far as the synth-y stuff that I post goes, Rainbow Delta is juuust a bit on the more propulsive side . I have seen this album a few times over the years but have never heard it. Many thanks for that opportunity.
Initially the result of an intensely creative acid trip, the album includes two long compositions ('Rainbow Delta' and 'Draconian Measures') that range from pulsating insect rhythms to warm melodic synth washes bringing to mind the work of a more classically based Tangerine Dream or Popol Vuh utilizing some of repetitive elements made famous by early minimalists such as Steve.

Gleeson began experimenting with electronic music in the mid-'60s at the San Francisco Tape Music Center using a Buchla synth and other devices. Beyond the Sun was followed in 1977 by a more commercial album, Patrick Gleeson's Star Wars. He worked as an engineer on the 1978 Devo album Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!, part of which was recorded at Different Fur. He sold his interest in Different Fur in 1985.
