A seventy-two minute disc featuring 7 computer music compositions created over an eight year period, from 1986 to 1994, by composer Robert Scott Thompson. Shadow Gazing wonderfully expresses the capacities and techniques of state-of-the-art computer music composition. These works add significantly to the growing body of computer music literature and present a unique approach to the development of sound composition technique. This music has been heard around the world in broadcast and in concert presentation. Some of these compositions have received international awards and significant critical accolades.

Computer music is a genre which is now beginning to garner a substantial following of sophisticated and passionate listeners and Shadow Gazing will surely appeal to this audience.
