Aria Rostami and Daniel Blomquist // Time Apart in the West CD

€12,95
  • Availability:

This is the sixth co-written album by ambient writers Aria Rostami and Daniel Blomquist, who have released in the past from Dirk Entries, Geographic North, Glacial Movements and others.Unlike traditional improvisational approaches, I'm more composition-conscious.Contains 6 ambient scape songs with gorgeous synth tones and lyrical melodies that inspire the imaginary landscape.Sean McCann is in charge of mastering. Limited to 14 copies.

“Time Apart in the West'' is Rostami and Blomquist's second record created while the duo were recording material in separate cities and their 6th release together.

This allowed for a completely different creative process, which focused more on compositions done separately than improvisations done live in the same room.

The songs on “Time Apart in the West'' are shorter than the duo's usual 10+ minute songs --some running just under 2 minutes.

The recording process began in the summer of 2020, while sheltering in place due to the Coronavirus with Rostami sending Blomquist organ improvisations he had done. These recordings were processed, sent back and then combined with additional recordings including synthesizers, acoustic instruments, field recordings, and an array of snippets pulled from the hours upon hours of recorded improvisations done between Rostami and Blomquist.

What resulted was an album that stands on its own in the catalog of this duo's work, with moments that feel like you're sinking in the ocean and moments that feel like sitting on a porch at dawn in the summer heat
