sonic portraits of intimate evening landscapes, and creating a series of memorable
ambient reveries. It is a tour de force of sustained ambient artistry.

November 20122 NEW RELEASES now available
ROBERT DAVIES : Arboreal
Arboreal spins a gossamer web of natural field recordings and delicate synthesiser pads that will both entrance and transport the listener to a secluded earthly sanctuary ... a sonic Eden.
Ambient at its very best.
PLEQ + PHILIPPE LAMY : Momentum
Momentum constructs immersive worlds from microsounds, noise fields, glitches, mutated drones and field recordings. The result is rich, fascinating, unpredictable and endlessly absorbing. Includes remixes by Machinefabriek, mise_en_scene, and Yukitomo Hamasaki.

"Appearances is their second collaborative composition, building upon the solid foundations of Distant Shadows from Spring 2011.
