The Nostalgia Machine
Album by Rob Ellis
“THE NOSTALGIA MACHINE” NEW SOLO ALBUM FROM ROB! April 2020 sees Rob release his first solo album for 16 years! Recorded last year at his home and at Middle Farm Studios in Devon, the album features twenty, mainly instrumental tracks, commissioned by KPM as a production music album for the label…Rob adapted the tracks from various compositions he’d written over a twenty plus year period.
From his release notes…”I titled the album “The Nostalgia Machine”, as its theme, very loosely, is the idea of memory and what that means for folk in different circumstances generally (and for myself too as a lot of the materiel was written some time ago), combined with the actual “production music “ purpose of the music, in that it is now adapted specifically for possible use in TV and Film, both of which, more often than not, function as “nostalgia machines” for people, (and probably now more than ever). But I hope that a certain amount of intended irony regarding the idea of nostalgia is also evident…(one of the tracks is entitled “Never Look Back”….)”
