Temple of the Innocent (Document of a Lost Ritual) is a CD that further documents Robert Rich's willingness and ability to think, create, and perform "outside the box." The elements of this soundscape are totally acoustic, with Rich using no electronics or processors. Using flutes, a zither, vocals, and some exotic and ethnic instruments, he has created a set that is every bit as atmospheric as his electronic constructions. Perhaps that is why this disc has such depth and soul. The rich and full sound comes from Rich's sound design expertise and recording techniques; deep listening and introspection are natural reactions to this unique adventure.
