Barreca, Marc – “Aberrant Lens” – [Palace of Lights]

barreca

Marc Barreca has been creating electronic music since the 1970s. “Aberrant Lens” is his seventh album for Palace of Lights records, produced by label-owner K. Leimer.

Mixing sampled instruments, treated field recordings, and synthesized sounds, Barreca builds ethereal and exotic musical landscapes. Most of the tracks have a pulsing rhythmic quality, slow and soothing, supported by ambient droning bells and tones.

Barreca includes samples from a wide variety of acoustic instruments, including accordion, glass harmonica, and Indonesian metallophone, which are occasionally processed and often looped with long delays. The diverse instrumentation gives rise to many distinct textures, and provides plenty of differentiation to the album’s 12 tracks, a rare feat for an “ambient” album.
