Notes & Reviews:

On his debut Ravello release Selected Galaxies, composer Samuel Pellman immerses listeners on a dreamy journey deep into the encompassing and mysterious universe in which we live. The composer depicts the ominous and impressive beauty of space through the use of electronic sound generated by the Kyma System, a symbolic sound design program. Selected Galaxies works to capture the magnificence of what man has discovered and spark the imagination of what wonders have yet to be revealed. Mr. Pellman is the author of the widely used textbook An Introduction to the Creation of Electroacoustic Music.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
On another entirely electronic program, Samuel Pellman's works take the shape of galaxies as inspiration. In brief, Peculiar Galaxies is a bit like the score to Blade Runner, Spiral Galaxies reminds me of the old electronic organ I played at my grandparents' home, and Elliptical Galaxies. Drones and just intonation dominate the sonic landscape in each of the pieces; and, while there are some shared aspects, they are differentiated by modal scales and sounds. Given the inspiration for each work the content hits the mark. Pellman uses modern technology to bring his vision of galaxies to fruition.
