4. Influences : Orbital

5. What happens next : one album a year


1. " Lanes senses music that takes the genre to a new platform where the mind and body are lucid of each other and reciprocate each others' actions. The result is an opus of successive compositions that create aural vignettes of human behavior and thought processes " ( Hybrid Magazine, March 6, 2007 )

2. " The realm of orchestral electronica has more untapped crevices than anyone knows, and he is still scoping out their hidden secrets " ( Hybrid Magazine, March 6, 2007 )

3. " The flashes of sounds and apparitional sequences lance through each other and form a celestial harmony " ( Hybrid Magazine, March 6, 2007 )

4. " Orchestral electronica is what Lanes has discovered with his experimental processes. The digital sounds work in harmony with each other and form voluminous creations that portray human thoughts and actions. The surreal feats are magically plied and ambiently phrased. The fusion of sound waves and digital effects are familiar in Enigma's music, and yet uniquely arranged in Lanes compositions " ( Hybrid Magazine, March 6, 2007 )

5. " His soundscapes tap into the human psyche drawing sonic schemes that form instrumental pieces capable of depicting human sagas. There is a surreal quality in these pieces, a sci-fi mysticism that besieges the listener into its cooling aura. The synergy of sound waves, fluctuating frequencies and jewels of laser slicing effects come together at a variety of
levels " ( Jazzreview Magazine, March 14, 2007 )

6. " Hydra Missing tracks are imbued with futuristic textures derived from sonic manipulation and digital contrasts. The album is chamber music with a progressive edge, a New Age tilt and an avant-garde vibe " ( Jazzreview Magazine, March 14, 2007 )

7. " Displaying World Music influences concurrent with works by Philip Glass, the Symbion Project, Freeze Pop, Rob Byrd and Enigma, Lanes’ works are steep in compressed sounds, bouncing notes and lances of fibrillating sequences. But what distinguishes Andrei among the populated pontoons of techno-pop artists is his instinctive style for arranging sonic impulses into surrealistic mirages " ( Jazzreview Magazine, March 14, 2007 )

8. " The music does not overwhelm the listener, but draws them into its trance. The vibe is relaxing and stimulates the imagination into a euphoric state of mind. “Area 51” exhibits a Mission Impossible style thematic score through the sonic schemes, while the darkly sinister hues in the tones on “Amalgama” create a mysterious chimera in the mood making it prime for background music in a movie depicting scenes filled with cunning behavior and cavort operations. The slight tension also gives this number a tinge of eroticism and sex appeal " ( Jazzreview Magazine, March 14, 2007 )

9. " Lanes causes contrasts in the pitch and direction of the digital sounds as well as the depth of their frequencies. He shows a scientific approach to his compositions that is initiated from the human psyche. The parcels of digitron sounds materialize magnetically like molecular structures attaching to each other, and then separating instinctually. The music notes resonate with agility as they slice and coast across the melodic floor boards. The compositions have an intensity and complexity that emotes a light show of vibrations hewn from human thought processes. They are instrumentals in digital form, and yet invoked from human impulses ( Jazzreview Magazine, March 14, 2007 )

10. " As there are an infinite amount of mathematical equations that exist, so too is Andrei’s imagination. The only predictable aspect about his music is that it is always aurally intriguing " ( Jazzreview Magazine, March 14, 2007 )
