For me, the process of creating atmospheric music is a pursuit of nostalgia, vaguely in the style of some other artists who came before me, but also with my own take on what sounds ‘right.’”

— Rudy Adrian

PORTLAND, OR, USA, March 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — As Dusk Becomes Night, Rudy Adrian‘s 17th full length studio album, offers a serene and personal exploration of sounds and atmospheres that slowly transition from evening into twilight and on through the night. Whether it is looking down to a desolate moonlit beach or observing the twinkling lights of a city, the delicately shifting synthesizer overtones and calming organic textures simulate these moments of astronomical twilight in the artist’s native homeland, New Zealand. The album releases today, and is available worldwide; explore the album at https://orcd.co/as-dusk-becomes-night

A visual interpretation of the music is live on the label’s “Visionary” playlist on Apple Music: https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/visions/pl.u-mJy8gPDFkByd9

Subtlety, nuance, and ineffable moments can be skillfully expressed at the hands of such an accomplished electronic music artist, and Adrian’s mastery of ambient electronic soundscapes is in top form. The album’s eleven tracks are rich with the deep and mysterious tranquility for which he is so well known. Moving through the magical moods of evening, As Dusk Becomes Night reveals a wondrous gloaming that eventually gives way to deep heavenly nightscapes.

Music and nature have always gone hand in hand for this artist, whose MoonWater album is hugely popular in the digital streaming world. He first started making electronic music while studying Forestry Science at the University of Canterbury, and in the following years at the University of Otago while completing a degree in Botany. The natural world continues to be a common thread in Rudy’s music through the exploration of sonic landscapes, where melody and rhythm play a secondary role to the textures created by synthesizers, wood flutes and the human voice.

In the back of Adrian’s mind while creating the album was fellow musician Jeff Kowal (aka Terra Ambient), who passed away in 2016. He shares, “He also created some of my early album covers. One of the pieces I was working on reminded me of the cover he created for my album MoonWater, featuring a somewhat surreal moon rising over a beach. So I decided it would make sense to call the track “Moonlit Beach” in his memory.”

“For me, the process of creating atmospheric music is a pursuit of nostalgia, using equipment and software I purchased, at great expense, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, to assemble a relatively sophisticated (at the time) home music studio. I enjoy catching a glimpse of how I felt 30 years ago, young and naïve, but keen to create a music with minimal melody or rhythm, vaguely in the style of some other artists who came before me, but also with my own take on what sounds ‘right.’”

Adrian’s previous label releases include MoonWater (LSM07), Desert Realms (LSM11), Distant Stars (LSM17), Atmospheres (SPM-2601), Coastlines (SPM-2602), and Woodlands (SPM-2603).

As Dusk Becomes Night is Rudy Adrian’s 7th release on the Spotted Peccary Label. It was mastered by Howard Givens, and is available for physical purchase in CD format and in 24-BIT Audiophile, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats. The CD version of As Dusk Becomes Night arrives in a factory sealed 6-panel gatefold package that includes vibrant artwork, liner notes, a 4-page booklet, and exquisite package design by Daniel Pipitone.
