Label: Distant Bloom
Kyle Landstra is a composer currently living in Portland, OR. He has built a formidable discography over the last decade, with releases on a number of highly regarded ambient imprints. His work, always recorded in real-time on hardware synthesizers, evinces a deep mastery of synthesis and structure.
With "Allay", Kyle offers up two longform hymns to the cosmos. These pieces unfold with such grace and patience that time itself seems both suspended and accelerated. Kyle's deeply textured synth beams move serenely through the cold reaches of space like rays from a distant sun. This is eloquent, emotive, and exhilarating ambient music from one of our most gifted contemporary practitioners.
