Dave Aftandilian Very grateful to have this documentation of some of vidnaObmana's formative experiments. Here looping repetition uncovers new aspects of the source material with each retelling, producing a gradual musical unfolding with the fragile beauty and fathomless depth of life itself. And yes, there are some shadows gathered here amongst the shimmering lights.

Brian Bourassa A more subtle and somber feel that I have ever heard from vidnaObmana. Favorite track: with shattering silence.

about

irst released on LP in 1990 on Vidna's Decade Collection label, then rereleased on CD in 1993 on Alio Die's Hic Sunt Leones label.

Vidna writes:
With Revealed by Composed Nature I had the opportunity to explore my first compositional ideas, in the ambient genre, onto record, sequel to my cassetteworks. Using only the internal sequencers of my instruments, I could manage to create,structure and synchronize short loops in compositions. The changing of timbres shows the melody towards the end of each composition. Unfortunately due to the poor quality of the vinil pressing, my intention to offer particular moods was lost. Hopefully, thanks to this reissue on digital format and the recent remastering from the original cassettemaster, the character and atmosphere of this work is restored.

A review from All Music Guide:
vidnaObmana recorded Revealed By Composed Nature in 1989 and 1990. It was his first vinyl album, intended as a sequel to his cassette releases. However, the pressing was of such poor quality that much of the emotional intent was lost. vidnaObmana digitally remastered the album and presents it here on CD. He also restored the original depth of emotions. Through a unique process, vidnaObmana creates synchronized loops through the internal sequences of the instruments. The shifting timbres and vast atmospheres convey feelings of loneliness and despair. There are no dark moments, but this is very somber and meditative minimalism. It is an important disc for fans of electronic minimalism.
