taken from Robert's newsletter:

It's here! We're happy to announce Medicine Box, Robert's
very cool new CD, with great artwork from John Bergin,
in bright 3-fold Digipack.

Medicine Box is now available direct from us at:

Robert Rich: Medicine Box

Surreal, melodic, ecstatic, shamanic:
Medicine Box may be Rich's most dynamic album yet,
an adept blending of technology with the ancient.

Cheri Chuang's wordless crystalline voice graces three
songs, with traces of Persian inflection. Deep basslines
hint at dub, while analog synth skitters and chuffs the
outlines of a rhythmic grid, propelled forward by pulsing
north African drums. Sustaining guitars bring a psychedelic
edge. Cello and reeds echo plaintively in the distance.
Rich's sparse piano adds droplets of modal jazz to this
dark tea.

1. Alba 4:16
2. Kaaruwana 6:18
3. Macula 6:27
4. Cornea 5:24
5. Crepescule 6:39
6. Pollen 7:33
7. Callyx 5:58
8. Salamander Quay 7:37
9. Helios 10:42
