This person here called Evan is half of that there band called Barn Owl. Not entirely sure what they’re like, but sources say one word - drone, the word of the decade. Just so you know what you’re getting yourself into.

From what I gather, he’s come from a band-oriented background and made the inevitable shift towards electronic sounds, distancing himself from the humble guitar. Have no fear though, there hasn’t been a recognisable traditional instrument yet, just a shapeshifting wall of synth textures, sporadic airy percussion hits and cut up environments partitioned into a sweet suite. Caminiti is pretty adept at this whole synthesis malark, conjuring up thick bass drones, electric rasps and horn-like lead melodies that build and die in a huge inverting tapestry.

It’s concise, dynamic ambient that doesn’t drone away with the same sine waves for 40 mins, giving your ears the pepper they need, drawing you towards an intensive listen rather than the ‘set and forget’ of some more reserved ambient. A recent comparison would be Leafcutter John’s LP Resurrection, with its spiralling intensity and poised tone. Very good stuff.

Evan Caminiti est un des membres du fameux groupe duo drone rock ambient Barn Owl avec Jon Porras. Il a deja effectue quelques sorties solo mais jusqu'ici rien de fracassant. Avec Meridian, Evan Caminiti sort une bombe d'expe modern/classical/ambian. On sent sa maitrise, qui ne faisait aucun doute, parfaite de la guitare electronique qu'il pousse dans ses rentranchements, et lacerent l'ame. Les basses sont magnifiaque, le field recordings a pleurer. Les textures sont superbes. Le voyage que Caminiti nous propose ici, n'est pas seulement un perce/ame, il berce egalement dans des melodies voilees, mais presente. Ce voile peut etre leur permet de s'exprimer parfaitement. C'est un voyage nocturne, et une introspection detaillee de soi qui vous attend avec cette bombe qu'on ne saurait que recommander...
