Michael Montes began teaching himself to play the piano at the age of seven and later dropped out of medical school in order to make composition his life's work. In 1995 he began the Zoar project in order to explore the dark side of our fading planet with keyboards, guitar and cello. He has also composed scores for several independent films including Joan Stein's One Day Crossing which was nominated for an Academy Award in 2001. His String Quartet No. 1 has recently been recorded along with Sonata for Piano and Cello. String Quartet No. 2 and a new set of works for chamber orchestra entitled Six Pieces for Anselm Kiefer are in preparation.

Peter Rundquist walked away from a promising Wall Street career to pursue music full time. Prowling various NYC music studios he began experimenting with the multi-layered guitar textures with which he has become associated. While engineering and producing Straight from the Delta, a CD of field recordings performed by Mississippi Delta blues musicians, he became interested in the concept of alternate guitar tunings. He has lent his originality to a number of film projects including Scott Saunder's This Close To Nothing and The Headhunter's Sister. Recent work includes Sounds of Monhegan, an ambient CD inspired by the ancient runes and rugged beauty of the island of Monhegan.

Erik Friedlander is a remarkable cellist whose career is marked by a striking level of achievement and creativity in a variety of music styles, including classical and jazz. For the past ten years, he has performed with artists as diverse as Joe Lovano, John Zorn and Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg. Erik is a classically trained cellist who maintains a wide ranging performance schedule while he continues to focus his vision as a composer and an improviser. Friedlander has always worked to stake out new ground for the cello in both his compositional choices and his dynamic improvising style. His music blends his vision of what the cello can be pushed to do, while maintaining a firm grasp on traditions, both improvising and classical.

About:ZOAR creates atmospheric music without boundaries. From ambient washes of the subconscious to explosions of dark industrial sounds, In the Bloodlit Dark (or ITBD) explores the theater of the mind. Each song is a mini-film score that paints disturbing images, from deep underwater melodic fantasies to a nightmarish predatory sexual soundscape that unfolds into a sub-basement torture chamber. Eerie ambience from cellos and strings combine with the sharp destructive teeth of synths and guitars to fill your mind with surreal sounds. With each repeated listening, ITBD reveals new layers of events and motion, invoking scenery as descriptive as a work of literature.

LISTENER'S GUIDE TO CLOUDS WITHOUT WATER

The Coming Anarchy The title of this piece is taken from an essay written by Robert D. Kaplan in which he argues that scarcity, crime, overpopulation, tribalism, and disease are rapidly destroying the social fabric of our planet. The music was specifically written to reflect the spirit of Kaplan's ideas. Field recordings of the Masai People of Lake Natron, Tanzania are featured.

Our Way of Life In Blood Orchid, author Charles Bowden describes with Old Testament fury and twentieth-century anguish the state of the American spirit as the long, bloody century draws to a close. Matt Johnson of TheThe provides a particularly poignant reading of this excerpt.

In Golden Light This story is told from the point of view of a ghost singing to her lover who is still alive. Early Music specialist Julie Comparini performs the vocal with poise and a deep sense of melancholy.

Winter Wind Brendan Perry of Dead Can Dance soulfully performs this dark ballad, an existential meditation on the passage of time. Ken Rich plays bass.

Ashes Falling Julie Comparini sings this song which contrasts the eternal aspects of nature with the ephemeral life span of human beings. The Masai People of Lake Natron, Tanzania are once again featured as well as world renowned bassist Tony Levin.

Clouds Without Water This instrumental piece features a solo cello performance by Erik Friedlander who plays a lamenting melody floating in a toxic, technological atmosphere.

In These Rooms In this poem/song of murder and mayhem Jennifer Charles of Elysian Fields displays her incredible talent as both singer and method actress.

Behind the Lake This piece is based on a work by the Russian poet Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966) which deals with the fear associated with an unknown source of impending doom. Early Music specialists Julie Comparini and Paul Shipper perform as a choral ensemble.

The Rain Begins Julie Comparini reads this dark poem set against a nightmarish, industrial soundscape composed of guitar textures, odd whispers, sampled noise and screaming parrots.

Wakeworld
Written several months before 9/11 this epic song eerily compares the fall of the Roman Empire to present day America. Brendan Perry performs the lead vocal, plays bass and sagat (Arabic finger cymbals).

Here the Deities Approve Julie Comparini performs this seventeenth century work by Henry Purcell.

clouds without water временами натурально жутковат в хорошем смысле. необычно, только вот классика не по мне, а остальная эмбиентовая часть очень нехила
