Rudy Adrian is one of New Zealand's top sound designers. His music is therapeutic, atmospheric, and so dense that it is almost visible. The Healing Lake is a set of short and mid-length minimalist compositions that are perfect for relaxation and introspection. Deep listeners will feel the tingling in their brains as this psychotropic -- almost psychoactive -- soundscape envelops them and carries them to the edges of subconsciousness. The deep, melodic synths and drones are warm and inviting; Adrian promises safety on this journey. This CD plays best with headphones and solitude. Candles and incense will enhance the experience further. This CD will appeal to fans of Liquid Mind, Constance Demby, and Jeff Pearce. It is essential for fans of electronic minimalism.
