Dawn Treader is one of the finest electronic music release of 2015. It’s the latest recording by Chronotope Project, the ambient electronic music project of multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey Ericson Allen. What’s great about this album is that Chronotope Project has develop a superb mix of meditative, ambient, and sequencer-based electronics with world music elements, specifically Japanese music and American Indian flute melodies.
Jeffrey Ericson Allen does it all in his home studio. He composes and records his music using a combination of analog and digital synthesizers, cello, Irish whistle, recorder, koto, Tibetan and quartz singing bowls, hand percussion and the Haken Continuum Fingerboard, a controller and synthesizer developed by American engineer Lippold Haken.
Dawn Treader is an exceptionally good ambient album overflowing with mesmerizing acoustic and electronic soundscapes and melodies.
