Spotted Peccary is proud to present the brilliantly re-mastered 20th anniversary special edition of Deborah Martin’s breakthrough album, Under The Moon. Meticulously restored from the original master tapes, this milestone recording sounds better than ever, offering an enchanting, delicate and immersive musical journey across the night sky. Night music in its purest form, Deborah Martin’s Under The Moon is a rich and simply beautiful album of dream songs; crystal clear visions through ethereal, mind-altering, trance-inducing atmospheres that lead the listener on a compelling and magical voyage through the realm between twilight and dawn.
The recent lunar eclipse marked the launch of this moon-inspired nightscape from Frore & Shane Morris. Blood Moon features an intoxicating blend of acoustic and electronic percussion, flutes, duduk, organic synth textures and ethereal atmospheres & soundscapes that follow in the Tribal Ambient traditions established by Byron Metcalf, Vidna Obmana, Robert Rich, and Steve Roach. All the hallmarks of the ethno-ambient sound are reflected here as the album glows with layers of rich harmonic textures – both ancient and modern – riding a polyrhythmic current of living, breathing drums and percussion. Pulsing soundworlds, both electronic and organic, rise up from swirling atmospheric drifts, all driven by primal forces of the past and present.

Broken Stars Through Brilliant Clouds finds veteran ambient electronic sound explorers Numina (Jesse Sola) and Zero Ohms (Richard Roberts) joining forces for the first time to embark upon a vast new deep sonic voyage through a solid hour of time-shifting, free floating, pure ambient space music. Billowing textures, serene and occasionally foreboding passages, and abstract washes of full spectrum sound set the stage for a mesmerizing voyage through the awe-inspiring wonder, beautiful isolation, and staggering immensity of infinite interstellar vistas. Broken Stars Through Brilliant Clouds is true spacemusic in every sense of the genre; soundscapes, simultaneously intimate and interstellar, that expand the boundaries of imagination.
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.
