about

In the latest release from his Palancar project, electronic ambient artist Darrell Wade Burgan has gone a unique direction, releasing a deep study of short-play ambience entitled Précis,

Eschewing the long form, Précis is meant to be experienced as a set of brief vignettes, each piece a still life image of the mood or concept in the artist's head at the time of composition.

Darrell describes this approach as “ambient haiku”, an attempt to evoke a particular idea or theme in as concise and direct a manner as possible. To sharpen the focus tightly, he composed and designed each track to reflect only a single mood or mental image. Each piece is distinctive and stands on its own, varying from the impenetrable dark ambience of Ego Death, to the quirky melodic ambience of South Rim, to the lush smooth space music of Endless Slumber.

Despite the diversity of the tracks, however, the entire album is holistic, with each track fitting seamlessly into place like the pieces in a jigsaw puzzle. Though each track may be brief, the album has more than 70 minutes of music on it, spread out over twenty separate pieces.

Without a doubt, Précis is one of Palancar's most unique and memorable releases. Précis is one album that fans of ambient music are recommended to check out, and add to their personal collections if the haiku speaks to them
