Life Flows Water is a new collaboration between Spotted Peccary Music’s founder and creative guru Howard Givens (Brain Laughter) and veteran electronic virtuoso Craig Padilla. It is a meditation in form, opening and closing with tones from a Tibetan bowl, and flowing, evolving continuously through seven impressions of deeply nuanced ambient electronic artistry. Performed live on a profound array of electronic instruments from classic vintage and modular synths to modern digital keyboards, this delicately choreographed work is really about inward expansiveness – like true meditation – focused on a purity and simplicity in an abstract fulness.
We’ve decided to kick off the 2015 release schedule by bringing out the special remastered edition of Erik Wøllo’s classic Images Of Light as a stand alone release. Along with four previously unreleased tracks from the era, Images Of Light now sounds better than ever, with a depth and clarity that far surpass the original version. Previously only available as part of an exclusive three-disc set, this special remastered edition is now available on its own – as a single CD – and for the first time ever as a download in CD quality lossless, as well as 24-bit High Resolution Studio Master!
Time Being’s Phillip Wilkerson combines creative forces with sound sculptor Chris Russell on Vague Traces, a collaboration steeped in stillness and quietude. Infused with the minimal drones, drifts, micro-sonics and discrete acoustics that are so often prevalent in their solo works, Wilkerson & Russell blend those styles perfectly together on Vague Traces, and the result is 63 minutes of deep drifting tranquility and sublime ambient spaces that seem to come from deep within a dream.

Transylvania-based soundscape artist Csillagköd makes his Spotted Peccary debut with an ambient electronic exploration through deep space on “Silent World.” Remote dissonance, amorphous sound textures, and other-worldly melodies create an atmosphere of contemplative tranquility on this astro-sonic journey that expands on the great traditions of true space music. From the mysteries of the unfathomable void, to the sublime tranquility of celestial wonders, Silent World is a deep introspection into the realm of dark and light, death and rebirth, creation and destruction; a timeless, boundless, hypnotic voyage through the universe.
