‘Wild Flower’ is inspired by the beauty of nature surrounding Richard Dobeson’s hometown on the outskirts of Madrid.
“A single flower would surely go unnoticed, it is the whole that makes it so beautiful, but if none of these humble flowers were to bloom, we would not be able to enjoy these beautiful landscapes.”
“The same is true of people and their gifts and talents. We must be like wildflowers and fill all around us with the best version of ourselves,”
Richard believes this sentiment applies to humans too. It’s a poignant notion that perfectly fits the euphoric and contemplative sounds created in this sonic landscape.
The opening acoustic guitar and the introduction of Gabriel Cassany’s electric guitar is mellow and soothing, before building throughout with the swells of string instrumentation and synth soundscapes.
The experimental layering of the electric guitar hints at the influence of Pink Floyd and Genesis, one of Richard’s inspirations. A rhythm section kicks in with colourful drums and a kaleidoscope of sounds explores the Progressive Rock world.
