Imagine if you were on an ambient journey into space and all you had on the ship was a xylophone and a digital delay ...
The Reluctant Cosmonaut is a ambient experiment by Jim Casson of Dark Orchard. Utilizing mallet percussion (Gamelon Strips and xylophone) and synths he has created an interesting, melodic ambient space.

"The Reluctant Cosmonaut returns with "3CP" and most certainly does not disappoint. With cascading percussion flowing over ambient moments, the album is a magical journey that stands out from the standard ambient fare... this album is magical... I wish it were on my label." - Jason Lamereaux, Somewherecold Records
