Dark Wind

“… rumbling, rolling blocks of sound-textures that shimmer like a Terry Riley drone while moving with a Feldman-esque slow majesty.” – Dusted

“… developing a slowly unfolding melodic line with tremendous resourcefulness.” – The Wire

“… warm dronic music that shimmers in sensuality.” – 21st Century Music

His music perfectly echoes the landscape he loves: impersonal, relentless, larger than human scale, yet gorgeous, a quiet chaos of colors, suffused with light. It’s not a climate everyone could live in. But for those who want to bathe their ears in an aural aurora borealis while staying warm inside, it’s a spiritual odyssey well worth taking. - Kyle Gann
