A Produce & Loren Nerell "Intangible" CD
A Produce and Loren Nerell, two highly respected, in California based, sound explorers in the genre, remained quiet
for the last few years. But since summer of 2007 they were sporadically working on new project that firstly ended
up as a soundtrack to Bart Santello's short film "Intangible". Now, few years later, they are striking with long time
awaited collaborative effort "Intangible" on Hypnos. Stunning digipak artwork (art and design by Hypnos' Mike
Griffin) caught immediately my attention, shortly followed by truly exciting sonic landscapes.
Yes, Barry Craig and Loren Nerell deliver amazing blend of gentle atmospherics and crispy tribal rhythms, all made
in a very distinguished manner showing enormous potential of like-minded musicians who are uniting their talents
and styles. The title track "Intangible" opens this show with its delicately crafted warm atmosonics, tranquilly and
graciously floating around my ears just like the cover image, wonderful intro!!! "Planet Atmo" fits exactly its title,
another beautifully evocative aerial ambience with occasionally raising and falling texture, a true intergalactic voyage
at its most captivating level! Earthy and galvanizing power of tribal drumming, tinkling bells, suggestive flutes and
strange sounds enrich exotic perfumed "String Theory". The next cut, "Area 51.1" merges gently deep space drifts
with slowed down trance-like rhythm, a very smooth and mesmerizing, crystal clear listening experience, totally
magnificent!!! "Lost In Transformation" is slightly more experimental, ghostly and meditative, flavored with singing
bowls, voice samples, bells, assorted metallic sounds. A very impressive exploration of deep and mysterious realms!
"Meadow Dusk" incorporates again tender tribal drumming blended with peaceful and melancholic floaters, another
strongly visualizing composition. The CD ends with hypnotic "Pot Covers At Dawn", the most naturally sounding
piece with occasionally emerging tribal beats.
Every piece on "Intangible" is masterful, A Produce and Loren Nerell delivered the best of their masteries. This is
one of the best albums so far for 2011, so if you like a truly sophisticated mixture of immersing sound painting
with sensitive tribal elements, you can't go wrong with "Intangible", it's highly recommended!!!
