Ancient and modern come together on I Am Here, as veteran musician/ composer Paul Ellis creates an electronic music portrait inspired by the mysterious rock carvings of the Chinook Tribe of Native Americans who lived in the Columbia River Gorge 15,000 years ago.
The three long form compositions on the album, two in the 20 minute range, and one almost 30 minutes in length, have a spellbinding quality that is constantly evolving, and draws favorable comparison to the electronic music artistry of Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra, Craig Padilla, Patrick O’Hearn, and Jean Michel Jarre.

Eight deeply moving and contemplative tracks of pure wonder, where pulsing electronics, billowing synth textures and rich ambient spaces create a heartfelt and profoundly introspective musical experience with much to offer fans of electronic ambient music. From the title track which pays homage to the Masters of the sequencer, to the deeper ambient spaces of tracks like “67″ “Dusk”" and “Cold Brightness,” to the perfectly placed piano of “The Path” and “Drops,” to the driving and powerful opening track, a collaboration with Jon Jenkins entitled “From Below,” Justin Vanderberg has crafted a meaningful and personal album that will not soon be forgotten.
