Richard Lainhart biography
Richard Lainhart is an electronic avant-garde ambient like artist who carries on the way written by early minimalist composers and popular artists as Harold Budd and Brian Eno. His work includes a large variety of instruments, from bowed tams tams, Japanese temple bells, voices to organic (Moog) synth chords and computer programs. All composition reveal weird, spacious and transcendent drone ambiences. The works collected in Ten Thousand shades of blue (from the 70s and the 80s ) are a brilliant demonstration of Richard Lainhart's dreamlike atmospheres and loops.

Review by philippe

— First review of this album —
4 stars Welcome to the tranced out drone zone. Ten thousand shades of blue is Richard Lainhart ultimate double album, featuring compositions of his early years. It explores brainy and intensively cinematic music experiences for electronics, micro-tonal drone epics. Richard Lainhart develops his very own music aesthetism, sometimes surfing on structural-minimalist waves of early pionniers / alchemical electronic artisans (Phill Niblock, Ramon Sender?) and admitting connexions with organic-ambient reveries (Brian Eno, Robert Rich to name a few). The suspensful-discreet music piece called Bronze Cloud Disk and the massive-spherically haunted cities of light represent the submit of Richard Lainhart musical production. Late 80's materials (staring at moon...) provide much more relaxed deep listening synthezised strings with lot of physical movements, beatific harmonies and fictional atmospheres. A must have for fans of cinematic-ambient and droning picture music.
Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
