Confluence is a set of experimental e-music from Anthony Paul Kerby, aka the Circular Ruins. He surrounds sci-fi sounds with fractal grooves, minimalist drones, electro-tribal riffs, and Zen space music. Actually, this is Zen space music. Kerby has a talent and a penchant for creating musical puzzles and this is no exception. Deep listeners will marvel at his ability to make the journey all things to all people and nothing to nobody and all points in between. The true marvel of this soundscape is that it works on all levels. While Kerby presents many ambiguities within his musical message, there is no ambiguity about this CD. It is essential.
