Inscape & Landscape
A Produce
1996 Trance Port TPT-CD-106 (CD)

Many of you know highly-regarded veteran ambient artist A Produce passed away in 2011. We are offering three standout releases that represent some of his fine work. We received these in limited amounts directly from his family, and they're being offered while supply lasts.

"One of this reviewer's favorite moments is when a new A Produce CD arrives. Never failing to capture a fresh sonic atmosphere to bask in, the California-based composer has hit the mark again with Inscape & Landscape. A Produce quotes Jack Gariss in the liner notes: 'Every note is heard in silence... for that silence is the birth of every note.' That sums up what A Produce's music is all about. Each sound appears from the silence of outer space, then swings into earth's orbit, falling to earth like a pulsating comet, dissolving into the dark sky, leaving a lasting perception." -- Dwight Loop, Santa Fe Sun, 9/96

"Perhaps the best album yet... A Produce moves slowly throbbing percussive rhythms to dreamy, floating synthesizer ambiences. More than many ambient artists, A Produce's music evokes a visual scenery that moves from the inside out." -- John Diliberto, Echoes, 12/96

"This is what ambient music is supposed to be: atmospheric, ephemeral, otherworldly, and ravishingly beautiful. A Produce continues to adhere to an ambient standard set by the likes of Harold Budd and Briano Eno in the mid-70's in this genre; other points of reference, or departure, might be the work of Steve Roach, Jeff Greinke, Jon Hassell and Robert Rich. A Produce creates evocative and heavenly soundscapes with a richness of sonority, breadth of timbre, a mix of influences both contemporary and non-Western, and sumptuousness that is simply breathtaking... A Produce has done it again." -- Dean Suzuki, Option, 1/97

"Inscape and Landscape is a wonderful release, and will please those already familiar with his music, as well as attract new fans that are hearing him for the first time. The aridity, silence, and solitude of the desert brings intrspection, purification and peace. Despite the strong theme, the tracks are really quite diverse, and require a careful listen. "Inscape & Landscape," "First Glimpse" and "Dwell" are my favorite edits, with the tolling bell of the latter being especially effective in creating psycho-active space. Given this release and his very strong White Sands of last year, I feel confident that A Produce will distinguish himself as one of the more important voices in ambient music in this decade." -- New Age Voice, 12/96
