BRANNAN LANE & AMIR BAGHIRI
CD-R, Private Release, 2004
Lucid Circles is the first collaborative outcome of the rather well-known ambient composers Brannan Lane (USA) and Amir Baghiri (Iran/Germany), which was already recorded in 2002.
It’s an atmospheric album of 64 minutes in which the strongest elements of both have come to the surface. Introspective, quiet atmospheres fill the most part of the album, with only a small more active intermission with didgeridoo and percussion in the second track, although some static ambient percussion also shows up in the eight track.
But overall, "Lucid Circles" is a silent and rather vast ambient work were we delve into a dense, slowly morphing landscape of atmospheric textures with lighter and darker corners and processed environmental/nature sounds. So next to dreamy parts this recording also contains some organic angles as well. All in all, it’s worth giving this cd a try.
