Love Cannot Bear is a collection of haunting Soundscapes by Robert Fripp.
Soundscapes - consisting of improvised guitar solos played through a variety of electronic processors and sound modules - have been the primary focus of Fripp's solo performances for more than a decade.
The early generations of Soundscapes were presented via a quintet of albums released by DGM between 1994 and 1996.While there have been many memorable Soundscapes concerts in the interim period, allowing the sound world and approach to the work to evolve substantially, DGM's continuing commitment to Robert's work in all its forms King Crimson (live, studio and archive work), the ProjeKcts series etc., has left this key area unintentionally under-represented on CD. The Soundscapes concept has also been presented to a much larger audience over the last few years. As well as the ongoing series of individual concerts, Robert has played as part of the sell-out G3 tours of Europe and South America with Joe Satriani and Steve Vai in 2004, with Porcupine Tree in the US in 2005 and, most recently, in a series of warmly received concerts at this year's open air Big Chill festival in the UK.
While most Soundscapes performances embody many moods and musical areas, Love Cannot Bear presents Soundscapes in their most positive, tonal settings and is drawn, in part, from a series of live performances in the US in June this year.
Fripp is one of the few musicians working in the genre of electronic music who can successfully combine innovation and accessibility. Love Cannot Bear is, as a result, a highly accessible album. The audience for Soundscapes live has grown remarkably in recent years. With the release of Love Cannot Bear that audience now has the opportunity to hear Soundscapes in a more permanent setting.
