Sonic explorations of isolation, distances, and landscapes. The fourth Lammergeyer release.
Borders & Barrens follows the same general style as previous Lammergeyer releases, delving even deeper into sonic explorations of isolation, distance, and the mood of landscapes. The scene is coastlines, misty headlands, desolate marshes, barren moors and their mysterious solitude. The music is richly atmospheric, studded with inventive detail and drawn-out, almost subconscious melodies. It is a music with underlying emotion, and is a journey not to be missed. (Press Release)
"What elevates Borders & Barrens above the pack more than anything else is the artist’s near fanatical attention to detail which is thoroughly revealed when listening through headphones. That he crams so much “stuff” in the sound-field yet does so with such precise control that the assorted effects, layers of synths, and other melodic and drone-related sounds never resemble anything less than a single musical statement (instead of a mishmash of a collage) is a testament to his abilities and his vision. Nearly always accessible (unless your idea of ambient music never gets beyond Jonn Serrie), Lammergeyer/Kerby’s Borders & Barrens is an entertaining and compelling tour through musical interpretations of the assorted landscapes which the artist himself listed above. As such, it’s a perfect soundtrack to lonely storm-tossed nights or somber grey afternoons, when the path to such destinations holds no menace, leading instead to a sense of communion with our inner selves as well as connecting to the less “traditional” beauty of our diverse natural world."
Bill Binkelman - Wind and Wire
"Anthony Paul Kerby, the man behind Lammergeyer and The Circular Ruins, is, I think, one of the most interesting and consistent musicians working in the area of contemporary ambient music today...."
