Ransom Note Records welcome Belfast producer Lunar Orbit Rendezvous to the fold for Faith/Reason, a textured landscape of aural oddities that take on the long player form of an ambient tapestry.
Renamed and reinvigorated from his former LOR alias a few years back, this new incarnation sees him dabble with ambient production techniques, exploring the spaces between the cracks to examine the boundaries of space we find during the twilight hours.
Across the ten-track opus, Lunar Orbit Rendezvous uses his beloved Waldorf PPG Wave synth, his moog and piano, as well as employing field recordings, warped vocal samples, generative techniques and "one of Brian Eno’s 80s production tricks", (which involves an echo and a reverb being wired up in a certain way).
Released into the world on 16th July, Faith/Reason is made for playing loud whilst lying in long grass, as the dawn arrives or the light of the long day starts to fade on the horizon.
Lunar Orbit Rendezvous’ previous work has been supported by the likes of John Talabot and Bicep and released on labels such as Cin Cin, Exit Strategy and Get Physical.
