Album Notes
Bill Olien started Resonant Drift in 2004 with the release of the self titled debut “Resonant Drift.” The CD generated interest both on-line and on several electronic radio shows. Several tracks from the CD available for download were in the top 10 of total downloads on The follow up CD “Version 2.0” was released in 2005. Nev Dorrington of the Ultima Thule radio show named the “Resonant Drift” release as “one of the best of the year.”

“Flow Mingled Down” was released in 2006 and received several positive reviews with Bill Binkleman calling it “one of the better cross genre releases in recent memory”. Music from the first three Resonant Drift CDs has been played on Hearts of Space, XM radio, Ultima Thule, Ping Things, Alien Air Music, Soma FM’s Drone Zone, Stillstream and many other radio and internet radio shows.

After meeting in 2008, Bill invited multi-instrumentalist Gary Johnson to join Resonant Drift. Bill and Gary developed a natural synergy and found common interests in the exploration of sound and music. Combining synthesizers, guitars, percussion, ethnic instruments and field recordings, Bill Olien and Gary Johnson of Resonant Drift explore deep ambient and atmospheric sounds. Together, they recorded live, loops and sequences in their studios which became the new CD “The Call” officially released in May 2009.

“The Call” was mastered and sonically enhanced by Steve Roach in the Timeroom.

“The outcome has gained a lot of depth, as it slowly goes by in textual beauty and serenity...‘The Call’ is a worthy and well executed ambient/space recording for all who love the smooth dwellings of Steve Roach and alike.”
Bert Strolenberg, Sonic Immersion

“The dominant character of the album for me is one of an uplifting sense of warm floatation - this pleasant recurrent feel often has the listener blissfully entranced, bathed in the glow of a quiet sunshine...If you enjoy ambient music that uplifts and warms the soul this is an album for you.” Morpheus Music

“Olien and Johnson craft layered soundscapes that conjure open spaces and shadow-painted lairs, the sacred places of our ancestors and in our minds…The Call works very nicely as a quiet, looped listen but will also hold up played at volume…The Call is a Hypnagogue Highly Recommended CD.”
John Shanahan, Hypnagogue

"The end result is a stunning work of ambient brilliance where every track presents a beautiful and unique space to explore...Each track seems to create and develop its own space both elegantly and precisely. "The Call" is a tremendously strong release"
Ping Things
