ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TROPOSPHERE (Soundtrack for Your Head)
Troposphere is where we live, the atmosphere from the earth's surface to miles above its tallest peaks. The Troposphere is responsible for our weather. Clouds form, electrical disturbances occur and the temperature decreases with altitude. Tropospheric (adj.)

The Stratosphere rests above the Troposphere. The air currents here are more stable than any other atmospheric layer, so it's a good place to fly your spacecraft.

Mesosphere is the coldest layer in our atmosphere. So cold that small ice clouds form and sometimes can be seen in sunsets from the planet's surface. The mesosphere extents about 50 miles above the earth.

Thermosphere is the very top layer in our atmosphere. It starts about 120 miles above the planet and fades into outer space.

Solar winds are waves of protons, electrons, and ions that travel from the sun through out our solar system. These charged particles are illuminated as they collide with the earth's magnetic field causing beautiful auroras and disturbing radio signals on Earth.

An awestruck mood or fascinated mind-set pervades each piece...
Lane subtitles this release as a "Soundtrack for Your Head" and indeed as a"sounds collection" - it is rich and varied. If you seek an experience, a journey of imagination, and aural props for some internal story line - do
obtain yourself of a copy of Lane's ambient work. Much of this sonic voyage
is too interesting to completely relax to, too involving to ignore, and much
too mysterious and foreboding to find perfect "peace".

And is this music? Much of Lane's ambient art is not. There are places
where space music elements come out but things rarely finally lilt into a
musicality. This is a head-trip of synths and effects, panned left to right,
whirling about, echoes, flanged, phase-shifted, droning, blipping, and
ringing. It is very, very professionally handled and extremely effective for
setting a mood. But what mood? That is a very difficult call. When
relaxation might set in, there still is an edge-of-your-hearing "thing"
happening "over there" or suddenly there's a "scene change" and you're off
into another sonic scenario. If Lane were to vigorously market his skills as
a soundtrack/ effects man to movie production companies, I can guarantee
they'd be impressed and within a year or two he'd land a deal somewhere. His
stuff is that good, really excellent techniques.

As a relaxation device or background ambience - I cannot fairly recommend
Lane. At least this release and his other ambient work to date - all evoke
an active participation, as they are predominantly mentally involving and
keep grabbing your attention. In some places, during a few tracks, you will
find a relaxing fugue or two but there's that shadow of "something's about
to happen, I better watch out for whatever it is . . ." These are of
course, my subjective feelings upon immersing my head in Lane's world. Yet,
I feel confident in saying Lane leans towards a dark ambience of subdued
tensions. An awestruck mood or fascinated mind-set pervades each piece. This
is exactly the type stuff to listen to and find inspiration for writing
sci-fi/fantasy/horror adventure stories.

So give Lane a spin and experience his strange world of mystery. It's a
very cool place to cruise through. ~ John W. Patterson

Excellent relaxing music
Excellent relaxing music. You must play this CD after turning off the lights, closing your eyes and lying on the sofa. You will do a trip around our planet's atmosphere. Beautiful sounds, sustained chords and layers of electronic smooth sounds. If you like ambient music, this record is for you.

... beautiful, soothing, meditative ...
A beautiful, soothing, meditative album. Appropriately (for its title) atmospheric. Warm, cushioning clouds of sound. Highly recommended.

Just what I like to relax to
Bought my second copy, as I gave the first to a friend who has had difficulty giving it back:> I purchased more by Lane and particularly like Piano Dreams and Nightscapes.
