J. Arif Verner is one of the most talented electronic minimalists in the U.S.A. Through the Timeless is the first Spotted Peccary release of the new millennium and it is a classic. Verner blends minimalism, space music, atmospheres, symphonic synths, and new age sensitivity to define a pure hybrid that is uniquely native to America. This CD absolutely caps the Spotted Peccary quest. "Pure hybrid" sounds like an oxymoron, but it is not. Verner makes this soundscape his own. By pulling those styles together he sets a new standard. That standard assures him a seat in the perpendicular universe. This CD will appeal to fans of Liquid Mind, Alpha Wave Movement, Constance Demby, Lisa Lynne, and Suzanne Ciani. It is an instant classic.
