Artist: Loren Dent (@)
Title: Empires and Milk
Format: CD
Label: Contract Killers Records (@)
American sound artist (Austin, TX) Loren Dent uses guitar, strings, sampling, vinyl manipulations, and field recordings to create places to live in. We are presented with 77 plus minutes of sound and light. The only way I can describe all this sound is that it is alive! No weak preset synth tones and aimless doodling. We are in the presence of a major voice in the ambient field here. There are so many layers going on at once and playing it loudly or softly will change the effect, like all good ambient pieces. I recommend this unhesitatingly even though there are a few tracks I would have left out simply because they weren't at the level of the rest.
