Dan Pound is an American, classically trained musician hailing from Santa Rosa, California. The last couple of years he specialized to composing ambient electronic and new age like music, and built quite a catalogue of privately composed and released works.
“Dream Spaces” is a work of introspection, in which the free form tranquil soundscapes meander and unfold in a slow pace. They are intended “to accompany a variety of activities that are quiet and require a non obtrusive environment”.
Although I wished the overall sound was a bit warmer, the eight tracks on the album offer a lush textural ambience which makes the mind wander and relax at the same time.
I think this works out best on soft drone-fields and lush swirls of “Feeding the Moon”, although the album as a whole breathes an intense atmosphere and deep immersion which suits well for meditation and what Dan calls “deep zone exploration”.
This is a proper album of deep textures that makes your mind slow down in these busy times.
