Boomkat Product Review:
Dallas Acid take their nuance for designing compelling soundworlds to offer the listener “a deeper study, a chance to feel the tones of the planet, and then exist for a while in the ether of synth and gong.” Or as described by Arrive Without Leaving LP collaborator Laraaji, “Majestically immersive sound spaces in which to float, wonder, move and trance.”
Dallas Acid are Christian Havins, Linda Beecroft and Michael Gerner. In their words: “We’ve experimented with remixing our own recordings over the years, but rarely has a piece come into its own, with a unique personality and such a distinct feeling from our originals. The approach we took was similar to when we were creating music for float tanks a few years ago: stripping it down to a select few tracks, affecting & manipulating the speeds, and then remixing them into a new composition.
“While The Spiral Arm focuses on the collective human experience: celebrating love and life, overcoming gut- wrenching tragedy, and coping with the increasingly bizarre, science-fiction reality we face as a species every day, The Spiral Ambience shifts perspectives, imagining the relationship from the planet’s point of view.”
