Finish of the Vanishing is an extension of the previously released, "No Sleep for Dreamers". Music compositions designed to enhance the time you spend soaking and resting in the presence of God. Balance between sound and silence is it's essence. A "World Flow" sonic design of sparse spiritual piano improvisations with an intriguing organic background.
Along with these metaphorical sketches of sound is an added dimension of vertical color that brings the music closer. In fact most of this album is constructed on a vertical basis.
The music is concerned with the sheer color of sound, rather than with the linear (horizontal) growth of the melodies. Finish of the Vanishing presents certain tone colors or timbres, and the interest lies in the relationships between these colors, instead of the evolution of thematic material, common in Western art music.
Robert Windfield was born in the Silicon Valley area in California, and has been involved in Commercial Art since 1972. He moved to Los Angeles to play and produce music as well as experiment in film, and recording. It was during this time he was exposed to Environmental and Ambient soundscapes while playing in a local punk band (The Videots) in Hollywood.
He has been in computer operations for 18 years building video and gaming computers, and has continued to stay involved in commercial art and media. Currently he is the founder of the media development business River3 Digital, as well as FireHouse Films.
"My influence comes from my time living in Berkeley and San Francisco in scope and feel. Most of this music is a by-product of film scoring projects and video that I'm currently involved in with Firehouse Films...www.firehousefilms.com."
