A special piece of ambient music, one of the best i've ever heard. It certainly succedes in the attempt of freeing man from the crowded and polluted life in the cities, and putting him in a higher state of mind.
Shorelights, "Summer Cottage Music" Recorded in the drizzle at Armstrong's Lakeport Resort Campground, Lakeport Michigan, Spring 2017. A quadraphonic recording. EQ curves optimized for low-volume playback. Mastered to Tandberg TD20A. Field recordings via Sound Devices 702 + Core-Sound High End Binaural Microphones, and Marantz PMD-430 stereo cassette + Crown SASS Microphone. The sound of sitting on the back-porch, watching Lake Huron during a spring drizzle. Strange lights glistening in the trees. The omnipresent pulse of Mother Earth in the countryside.
Quiet sonics / energies not experienced in today's busy metropolises. This and a pair of headphones is a ticket to a lakeside camp in a warm spring rain. Sensuous and evocative. A 60 minute sound sphere designed for escapism and exquisitely emulates an environment to drift and engage in quiet relief, one that is highly-dynamic and seriously sublime.
