      His acclaimed live performances and the ever-ascending quality
      of his recorded works have made Rudy Adrian one of the most
      distinctive voices in the ethereal music genre. His talent is in
      picking just the right sounds, arranging them in unique
      combinations and rolling it all out in an always-engaging collage
      of music and atmosphere. This process stems from personal
      experience or inspiration, as on his CD DESERT REALMS
      (69'28"). The nine tracks are each an electronic expression of his
      beloved rugged desert landscapes, and the connection we as
      humans feel toward the natural world. The first few tracks feature
      tones played on native flute or originating from Rudy Adrian's
      own atmospheric vocals - mixed amidst hushed synth pads and
      ceremonial bells. The synthetic and acoustic textures go
      together very well and result in compositions that feel
      transcendent yet tethered to earth. Throughout DESERT
      REALMS harmony and timbre mutually reinforce each other.
      Faint chimes cast above luminescent chords provide a slow
      contemplative pace while reverberant strings (as if breathing)
      shift from dark keys to light. The experience is quiet and
      beautiful, like that of Spacemusic classics by Jonn Serrie,
      Michael Stearns and Kit Watkins. Most times consoling, but
      occasionally questioning, DESERT REALMS is a nuanced
      journey into both sonic and terrestrial landscapes.

      Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from DESERT
      REALMS the new CD by Rudy Adrian
