Robin Storey aka Rapoon and Polish label Zoharum team up for another release of archival recordings. In this case, it is the third reissue of an earlier album, now expanded with an additional disc of previously unpublished material. “What Do You Suppose? (The Alien Question)” was originally released in 1999, and differs from the other releases because it is based primarily on the spoken word. Canvas of this project are the theories related to aliens and their presence on the planet made by William Cooper. Music is therefore subordinate to the text, it is much more withdrawn than on other Rapoon releases, but it does not make it one-dimensional. On the contrary, by moving the centre of gravity to the verbal layer, Robin Storey redefined his compositional language.
The bonus disc called “Project Blue Book” is the new album mixed in the current year, which uses the original tracks to the “What Do You Suppose? (The Alien Question),” but this time it is devoid of the narrative. The result is not even an alternate version of the original, but a completely different album, where accents are distributed differently. More ethnic trips here, but it will also include pieces for lovers of shimmering ambient
The CDs are presented in a digipak sleeve and the album is strictly limited to 500 copies.
