Ambient electronic composer and recording artist Rudy Adrian’s homeland of New Zealand is filled with a stunning variety of unspoiled spaces and cinematic terrain, providing an abundance of inspiration for Atmospheres, his latest textural electronic impression. Featuring nine tracks of slowly evolving melodies, harmonically rich synthscapes, natural ambiences and dramatic percussive punctuations, Atmospheres is a natural progression from Adrian’s earlier textural releases Desert Realms and Moonwater. Reminiscent of ambient works by Brian Eno, Steve Roach, Mark Isham and Between Interval, this new offering from Rudy Adrian dwells in the landscape of expansiveness and introspection; inspired space music that is rich with personal appreciation, vast beauty and awe.

Following three masterful collaborations with Craig Padilla on the Lotuspike label, Zero Ohms returns with PROCESS OF BEING, a new ambient solo work of floating, ethereal, luminous and expansive spacemusic. With his flutes and wind synthesizers in tandem, Zero Ohms brings forth billowing spaces that ascend and gently fall, effortlessly altering the listener’s sense of time and space. This brilliantly subtle, beatless environment breathes with a sense of infinite presence, leaving both the past and the future elsewhere.

The dramatic final chapter of the award-winning three-album collaboration from David Helpling and Jon Jenkins, FOUND follows the path set by the duo’s previous genre-defying releases, TREASURE and THE CROSSING. Blending cinematic electronics with rock power and spacemusic sensibilities, Helpling & Jenkins complete their trilogy on a grand scale, with deep emotion and unmistakeable style. Filled with powerful rushes of adrenaline, beauty, loss and triumph, FOUND is an album for the ages.
