Burton Thomas This is an intriguing and wonderful album: a brilliant mix of rhythm (by Landru, who must "be of the body" along with Dr. McCoy) and atmospheric synths by Ran. The final cut would make a brilliant segue with The Fool by Quicksilver Messenger Service, if you are into mixing the past and the present. Favorite track: Alluvium.

Waterfront is the consolidation of the first acclaimed collaborative work between the ambient artists Ran Kirlian and Landru, co-owners of the online ambient label Altera Orbe. Recorded as a real time performance during one whole session and later mastered at the artists' recording studios, Waterfront reflects the interaction between the sublime drones and ethereal ambiences created by Ran Kirlian and the hypnotic and melodic sonic riffs and tribal percussion loops composed by Landru. Using both digital and analog synthesizers as the main sound sources, Waterfront has a very unique organic mood, mainly thanks to those background ambience landscapes provided by real ethnic instruments and dedicated field recordings.


released January 1, 2012
