Release data: Bertrand Loreau (feat. Lambert) – In Search of Silence CD/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Spheric Music, 2016 The switch to other analogue instruments than his regular gear proves beneficial to the sound of the outcome of Bertrand Loreau’s “In Search of Silence”, who invited Lambert Ringlage in a later stage to add some contributions.
