Ombient w/Chuck van Zyl: Live at The Gatherings 20 May 2017 (excerpt)


The album The Gatherings 20 May 2017 (58'55") presents the complete live performance by Ombient (Mike Hunter) and Chuck van Zyl during the 25th Anniversary Season of this most venerable innovative music series. Their realization KL-93 was made live, in the heat of the moment, before an enthusiastic, informed audience. As these conditions are known for revealing the creative spark, we find both musicians and their listeners experiencing this extraordinary music together in the act of being made.

This work, and that of contemporaries such as Arc, Cosmic Ground, Free System Projekt, Node and Redshift, draws on higher-order capacities. Theirs is a minimalism that speaks volumes. By carefully exploiting the intrinsic technological limits of 1970s Electronic Music this duo enlarges the medium's expressive range and proves that this genre is an organism that continues to grow and change with each new manifestation. Today's artists hope to elevate the Spacemusic experience to one of mystical proportions - as they continue to push this sound as far as it can go.

Proceeds from the sale of The Gatherings 20 May 2017 by Ombient w/Chuck van Zyl go to support the efforts of CIMA of PA, the IRS recognized, non-profit, all-volunteer organization which oversees The Gatherings Concert Series in Philadelphia.
