From the Gray and the Green

Moving in the directions that originated with the Environments recordings and evolved to become extended pieces like Klaus Schulze’s Gewitter, Robert Henke’s Studies for Thunder, Brian Eno’s On Land and Steve Peter’s Here-ings, the music of From the Gray and the Green finds its origins in landscapes. This time, landscapes that Marc Barreca knows as his home—the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. These 11 pieces and 3 digital-only bonus tracks are sculpted from layers of synthesized and sampled instruments, field recordings and processed vinyl. Barreca tells us that “My goal was to create immersive, evolving landscapes shaped by a dynamic past and viewed as if through the translucence of passing clouds.” From the Gray and the Green offers a music of contrasts and change, departing from traditional ideas of Ambient to arrive in shifting landscapes of the strange and the beautiful. Includes an 8-page booklet and download card for the complete album and 3 bonus tracks. Mastered by James Savage.
