Portland Oregon’s Hunter P Thompson has been making ambient synthesizer music as Opaline since 2011. Last year he was extremely productive recording both Projector Mapping (Phinery) and Shade Virtual (Habitat Tapes). Spatial Awareness slows things down a bit with 2 expansive synth meditations. On Awaiting Levitation melodies ebb and flow with an almost icy decadence while Clearing Beam strips that all away leaving us with a pool of minimal static. Thompson’s newest offering sits somewhere between Daniel Lopatin’s Returnal days and Eno’s Obscure series.
