'Crimsworth' was an installation art piece by Rob Ward on display in Nottingham and later Leeds in the autumn of 1994. This CD bears Bill Nelson's ambient audioscape for the installation (it was a flooded room lined with ceramic paper into the centre of which you walked via a narrow platform). If you understand ambient, you'll appreciate how strong the Crimsworth soundtrack is. This one taps right into the senses in a rare fashion that's tricky to describe without sounding like a sad hippy. I've never been able to play it less than twice in a row because it always seems to end too soon. And while it's not typical of the bulk of Bill Nelson's instrumental work, I'd rate it as the best he's done, hence the 5 stars. This one's really special. I suspect divine influence! :-)

Bill Nelson can master many styles, and here he successfully adds ambient to his portfolio. Having been a fan of his ambient-leaning "Simplex" album of instumentals, I was curious to see how he would approach longer pieces as he does with the two 30 mins tracks that make up "Crimsworth". After all, not everyone can manage it - Jean Michel Jarre's "Cousteau" attempt suffered from too-fast changes in tempo and texture to my ears. No need to worry - this is top-notch stuff, up there with Brian Eno's warm yet brutally minimalist "Neroli", his "Music for Airports" album and David Sylvian's "Steel Cathedrals". The opening sounds on part 1 of water falling/lapping and a weird hum ebb and flow with gently floating keyboard textures, underpinned with the repetitive (and pleasant) sound of water dripping. With a bit more tonal variety on part 2 in terms of percussion and random sounds, Crimsworth is a very worthy addition to the ambient genre.

How can one describe music that has no structure, no rhythm, no tune, no sense of progression, no obvious reference points? Is it meant to be listened to, or be played in the background while you do something else? Why are there two "tracks" that seem to be identical - or is that just an illusion?

I can only describe its effect, which is like a shimmering stillness or a slowly shifting tapestry of colour and texture. It is like a walk through a forest of shadows and shade and soft rainfall. It is like sitting beside a dark pool and staring into unfathomable depth and losing track of time.

This recording might be called minimalist, except that it seems full of something: sounds, atmospheres, space, tranquility, subtle movement ... layer upon layer. Somehow it draws you in completely. It is unimaginably beautiful.

I have listened to this perhaps hundreds of times, and I never cease to be surprised. How can so little content prove such a rich, rewarding and endlessly changing experience? I never tire of it. It is extraordinarly energising and uplifting. Somehow it restores one's spirit and clears the mind.

If this works for you, then I also recommend Brian Eno's 'Thursday Afternoon'.

HASH(0x99a34864) out of 5 stars A great surprise from Nelson 14 Mar. 2000
By martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bill Nelson is an extremely prolific artist. He puts out records high and low, and my previous experiences is - while he has excellent judgement in whom he works with (David Sylvian, Harold Budd and Roger Eno come to mind) - his own output hasn't really appealed to me. However, this release shows that he really knows how to create great atmosphere. Not unlike the David Sylvian/Holger Czukay collaborations from the late 80's (esp. Plight+Premonition), this is an absolutely gorgeous pece of layered work, the kind you wish would go on forever (there are 2 similar tracks, which both clock at around 30 minutes). Highly recommended!

HASH(0x99a348b8) out of 5 stars Environmental protection 3 Mar. 2001
By Geoffrey P. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This little gem is a recent favorite of mine and if you are a fan of Eno's 'On Land' this will prove a pleasant surprise. Two 30 minute soundscapes that soar, rumble and brood, complementing an environmental installation. For those familiar only with Bill Nelson's wonderful guitar, 'Crimsworth' is an excellent diversion into a real landscape imagined in musical terms. Recommended.

HASH(0x99c3f33c) out of 5 stars A very contemplative piece. 15 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Crimsworth is a very moody and deep CD. It is based as a piece for an art exhibit.It also is very ambient and sounds almost like one of Brian Eno's releases.If you are a fan of sonic landscapes and ambient music, then this is just what you need on your shelf.

HASH(0x99a34b10) out of 5 stars Case of the essential rain drop 14 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bill come to us in the guise of a megalithic rain drop constantly dripping with an ambient background to sustain the intensity. It is a chapter right out of Noah and the Ark but with water as the main theme and with God as the absent plumber. If you are into Chinese water torture or leaky faucets you will enjoy this work. One think is for certain, you will hear the biggest water drop of your life. A must for all who are into water music!
