◊  After spending the ’80s writing dark ambient diatribes and working alongside Nurse with Wound, multi-instrumentalist Robert Haigh took a sharp detour into drum ‘n’ bass with his Omni Trio project, only to resurface under yet another glaringly different guise over the past decade. And that is Robert Haigh the plaintive piano man, a minimalist cut from the same cloth as Satie and Pärt. Darkling Streams is the latest record from that realm, a spare listen that does a lot with little and loudly discredits the assumption that albums like this exist as mere background music.
◊  It would be impossible not to liken Darkling Streams to music by many neo and modern classical composers. Barely reverberated keys float through the minimalist chords to construct vapors of beauty, tranquility and lull. Subtle arpeggios, appearing in similar tonalities, sprinkle the album with patience and poise. Walking keys across abstract and chromatic scales remind me, of course, of works by Ryuichi Sakamoto, and there is an essence of the last breath by Erik Satie, Henryk Gorecky, and even John Cage. Finally, when the synth   line comes in, I recall minimalist pieces by Brian Eno, Harold Budd and Steve Reich. Yet in the 90s Robert Haigh was credited with developing ‘ambient drum’n’bass’ via his lauded Omni Trio project. So how was I to know that at once I would fall in love? Another gem from that mysterious Primary Numbers label, already responsible for favorite works by Aidan Baker and Jack Dangers.

OMNI TRIO:
Artist Biography by Sean Cooper
◊  Haunted Science Actually the single force of one Rob Haigh, Omni Trio's sunny brand of intricate, orchestrated drum'n'bass has been growing in acclaim since the onset of "ambient" or "intelligent" jungle in the mid-'90s brought names such as L.T.J Bukem, Spring Heel Jack, and TPower to the fore. By his thirties, Haigh already had a decade on most of those names, a fact made evident in the often more eclectic influence behind his tunes, from Carl Craig and Mantronix to Miles Davis and Can. An acolyte of London's mid-'80s experimental industrial/avant-garde scene, Haigh's first Omni Trio releases — a series of 12"s issued in distinctive, color-coded sleeves — started to appear in the early '90s. Following on the heels of early hardcore and darkside techno, Haigh's tunes were among the first composed outside of jungle's immediate dancefloor loop, and were early examples of the music's potential to draw on a wide range of sources (ambient, house, jazz, soul) for influence. His first full-length album, The Deepest Cut: Vol. 1, was released on Moving Shadow in 1995 and combined many of those early 12" tracks — "Mystic Stepper," "Renegade Snares" — with some stunning production and remix work by Foul Play (on "Snares"), among others. His proper debut, Haunted Science, was released by Moving Shadow in 1996; Skeleton Keys followed in 1997. In addition to his increasingly successful career as a recording artist and remixer, Haigh also owned and operated a record shop in Hertford.
