Reflect Like a Mirror, Respond Like an Echo
A Produce
1997 Trance Port TPT-CD-107 (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.

"Overall, this creation is haunting, almost unsettling, probing hidden mysteries of the soul. Many cuts are very long, and very hypnotic, with an organic shimmering sound like random molecular movement. Its otherworldly ambiance brings to mind the devic kingdom. Great for deep journeying." -- Heartsong Review, 11/92.

"Each piece is polished and deep, an evocative marvel inspiring an alert state, sometimes a let's-go-bye-bye state in others... This heartfelt and intelligent creation is a worthy successor to Harold Budd/Brian Eno's Plateaux of Mirror." -- NAPRA Journal, 11/92.

"Absolutely entracing and mood-seducing, this is active ambient music, and, although electronically derived and motivated, results in an abundancy of lush, warm sounds that invite, beckon and entice. Keyboardist Ruben Garcia assists on the title track and the achingly beautiful "Clear Pools," where the dark hues of A Produce's electronics mesh seamlessly with Garcia's striking digital chords. Captivating." -- i/e, 7/93.

"This fascinating CD combines the best of Eno, Budd, Hassell, Roach, Rich, and Borden. The result is a meditative trance journey the like of which I haven't heard since Michael Stearns' Planetary Unfolding... an utterly subline tour of outer and inner space.... This CD covers a lot of ground and will cross many listening genre boundaries, as is evidenced by its reviews in all the other alternative music publications." -- Synthesis, 10/93.

"Eno/Hassell fourth-world ambiance and Harold Budd styled keyboard atmospherics.... The most distinctive tracks are the last three, all of which have a strong invented ethnic flavor.... Other tracks are nicely (and even beautifully) done, but have a more generic meditative quality which hovers somewhere between background and foreground." -- Option, 1/93.

"Well away from the melodic-based Eno ambient explorations, this is much moodier and strange music where often the sounds are unidentifable and the mood elusive. A kind of uneasy ambient music, I suppose, that reveals itself more with each listen." -- Audion (England), 6/93

A Produce
1995 Trance Port TPT-105 (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.

"A Produce has done it again with his best work ever, WHITE SANDS. This is one of those recordings that gets better with each listening. Is it because it's timeless, trance inducing, yet 'alert' music? That rare moment of clarity when one is quiet yet very 'alive'? Or is it a reflective, sonic snapshot of an at peace artist? A Produce, I feel, is on to something." -- Dwight Loop, Santa Fe Sun, 9/95.

"This is a contemplative, diverse mix of slow ambient synthesizer places that compare favorably with similar works by Brian Eno, Steve Roach, Aphex Twin and Sati. The CD flows well even though it contains a considerable variety of sounds, and merits a serious listen. There is something here for every New Age/ambient/space music enthusiast -- electronic New Age, tribal techno, meditative, ambient and sombient pieces, as well as works falling between definable genres, making this one of my favorite recent releases of ambient music by a single artist." -- New Age Voice, 10/95.

"A Produce has consistently turned out albums of highly evocative and frequently very beautiful music which has on occasion been referred to as 'trance' music but would more accurately be described as 'sound paintings.' Each place evokes a place, a natural environment, a state of being. The composer is subtle in his use of eclectic resources that span the techno-tribal spectrum... The WHITE SANDS anthology is a perfect introduction to this talented artist's oeuvre." -- P-Form, 6/96
