After meeting each other in 2008, original solo-member Bill Olien has invited multi-instrumentalist Gary Johnson to join him in his project Resonant Drift. Together, they developed a natural synergy and found common interests in the exploration of sound and music.
Sophisticatedly combining synthesizers, guitar, ethnic instruments and wildlife recordings, the duo explores ambient and deepspace sounds on the organic flavoured “The Call”, which contains twelve tracks of immersive music.
The excellent mastered and sonic enhancements were in the magical hands of Steve Roach, which have enriched the 60-minutes of compelling and intimate desert music enormously. The outcome has gained a lot of depth, as it slowly goes by in textural beauty and serenity, only occasionally supported by minimal sequencer patterns on the background.
All in all, “The Call” is a worthy and well executed ambient/space recording for all who love the smooth dwellings of Steve Roach and alike.
