„Thoughtful Machines“ is the third album by South Africa based music producer Placid Larry alias Daniel Ray van Zyl.
Daniel has always been fascinated with electronic music and the powerful effect it has on contemporary society. This new album encompasses the gratitude that he has for being able to express himself so vividly digitally.
Mindful of the fact that understanding and embracing different cultures is paramount in human evolution, the 12 tracks on „Thoughtful Machines“ are a liberation of these ideals which take the listener on an adventure across the world – from the calming influences of the East to the formulaic repetitions of the West resting on the African soul from which this music stems.
Placid Larry indulges us in a contemporary, worldly and optimistic easy listening collection of musical stories – full of thoughts, ideas and creativity…
