Robert Rich's "Bestiary" seems to be an anomaly to any given formulae of the "genre" since is succeeds in ways that any lover of any of the aforementioned styles could appreciate this disc even if touches of the other musical textures seep through and intertwine with their own personal preferences. Rich seems to have mastered this highly difficult task by also managing an incredibly well produced album with flawless injections and explorations of a small (but growing) space between specific musical tags

Thematically, Robert Rich's Bestiary seems to consist of some kind of otherworldly, almost animalistic electronic ambience, with titles like "Dante's Anthromorphic Zoo," "Mentis Intentions," and "Sharpening Her Talons. This work is strange contextually, both from the standpoint of Robert Rich's previous work as well as other electronic music; nevertheless, though, this is a strangely evocative and emotive recording

Bestiary (Robert Rich album). Bestiary (2001) is an album by the American ambient musician Robert Rich. This album showcases the musical concept that Rich has long referred to as glurp. It evokes a frenetic and surreal landscape inhabited by a wide variety of bizarre organisms. Work on this album began while Rich was working to create a library of Acid Loops for the Sonic Foundry company. He had previously created an Acid Loop library in 1999 called Liquid Planet.

Robert Rich was apparently a big fan of the electronic 'Cubase' programme which is quite evident here. The good thing about this album is that it's instantly recognisable unlike most ambient recordings. It has a definite charachter, sound and style unlike any other I've heard. Never boring, always interesting. Music for a hot night far away from where I live. An elegant, bright, Summery and very originall album from Robert Rich which sounds unlike any other I've heard from his huge catalogue. Radiant, beautiful and full of very deep, melodic electronic sounds

This musical bestiary maps a perplexing mindscape, shapeshifting organisms painted in sound, a sonic surrealism. Rhythmic, energetic, bizarre and very glurpy. Genre: Electronic: Ambient. Medieval bestiaries depicted strange and mysterious creatures, allegories from distant new lands filled with wonders. Today, these new worlds lie inwards; so this musical bestiary maps a perplexing mindscape, shapeshifting organisms painted in sound, a sonic surrealism. Like the liquid forms that populate the paintings of Yves Tanguy or Joan Miró, each sonic event takes on the qualities of a living thing; yet each appears evanescent, unnameable and foreign. Bestiary is rhythmic, energetic, bizarre and very glurpy.

Somewhere in the vast and ever-expanding world of true "ambient" music (i.e. not the slo-mo post 90s techno down-tempo chill-out grooves and jams) lies a myriad of spaces and areas which intertwine and break the usual expectations of labelling genres and not-so specific styles. In the very touchy area where experimental electronics meets drones and ambient with touches of what new-age would be if it had any sence of originality past the usual expectations, rare are the artists capable of navigating succesfully through these aural spaces which, in best case scenarios, end up as decently executed mixtures of stylings. Robert Rich's "Bestiary" seems to be an anomaly to any given formulae of the "genre" since is succeeds in ways that any lover of any of the aforementioned styles could appreciate this disc even if touches of the other musical textures seep through and intertwine with their own personal preferences. Rich seems to have mastered this highly difficult task by also managing an incredibly well produced album with flawless injections and explorations of a small (but growing) space between specific musical tags. "Bestiary" offers some insectoid-flavored textures, rhythmic motions and pulsations without stumbling into blatant beats, etheral waves and angelically-pitched synthetic drones, and some subtle semblances of melody, all through carefully constructed individual tracks which work as effortlessly by themselves or as the sum of their parts, creating a non-stop 53 minute long sonic venture tracked with eight intermixed pieces. An album which is equally intriguing, interesting, evolutive and soothing, it could almost act as an ambassadorial introduction to those who were never exposed to the various genres and styles the record manages to glide through. A solid recommendation, a worthy addition to any collection.

Bestiary is glurp funk. Glurp is a musical concept devised by Rich to describe sounds that remind him of that messy, squishy stuff at our literal core. When Rich is using his MOTM Modular Synth as he is here, it changes the whole structure of his sound. The squishing sounds are like the aural equivalent of a Cronenberg film. The organic is being filtered and punctuated through the machine in a very deliberate way. It's not as rigid as techno but it's also got more form and thud than some of his other work. The organic sweeps and samples are transformed by his synth work and the result is a multi-layered work that at its best moments funks, gurgles and percolates.

Experimental composer Robert Rich has studied both computer music and Psychology at Stanford University. With a deep rooted interest in using music as a psychoactive stimulus, Rich weaves a tapestry of sonic effervescence that captivates even the passive listener, and gives the active listener new wings to soar into the endless folds of space. Bestiary spits and gurgles its way through an enchanted forest of haunting tones and contrived dissonance. The opening track, “Mantis Intentions” is full of experimental meanderings that test the bounds of ambient music norms. “Nesting on Cliffsides”, clocking in at nearly thirteen minutes, is a fluid harmonious track that opens with a Far East pitter-pat of synthwork over some operatic female vocals, then soars through a wind tunnel and morphs into a sparse and spacey cavern of water drops and murky acoustics. “Sharpening her Talons” is reminiscent of Einsturzende Neubauten with its wall of noise, balls out ambience. The final track “Premonition” comes closest to having a traditional song structure. It features emotive, androgenous, Auto-Tune processed vocals that drive the Eastern tinged groove and help create an exquisitely melodic and beautiful song. Bestiary is soundtrack muzak for inward journeys through the soul.
