Sana Obruent is Paul Lopez’s intimate project for stirring up ambient dronescapes, which he apparently does in the dead of night, perhaps to let the spirits in. Prince Of The Air is a real drift of a record, with each track resting calmly but powerfully in the middle of any space it is played into. This is a CD release from Blackjack Illuminist Records.
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 08 December 2016
Me stressed. Me need ambience.....and luckily this week there is a fair smattering of drifty things to calm me down and while Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet would win any Ambient Album of the week we'd care to introduce this seventy minute album of hushed drones is a perfect back up plan.
Sana Obruent is Paul Lopez who apparently lives “somewhere in California” which is a vague enough description to get me imagining he's out in the hills somewhere concocting this stuff at the dead of night. Most tracks come in at around the ten minute mark and consist of subtly evolving tones in whichg the synth pad is firmly set to "relax". Like the best music of this genre it undulates and churns. Coming in and out of focus like a blurred photograph of something terribly bleak.
If the weekly dose of Celer records isn't enough for you then this should be one of Decembers go-to drifts. Fall asleep to it in the half light and remember to lie on your best eiderdown.
