About this item

DECK AMBER is the new album from Ant’lrd (Colin Blanton) and Benoît Pioulard (Thomas Meluch) and features seven collaborative compositions and two solo pieces - one from each artist. The work brings to mind contemporary artists such as Lawrence English, Celer, and Klara Lewis, lush and intense soundscapes powerfully developing throughout the album.

Since a young age, Thomas Meluch (Benoît Pioulard) has been fascinated by natural sounds and the textures of decay. Starting with his first cassette recorder at the age of eight he has been creating unique sonic environments that are rich with harmony, accented by field recordings and found sound. He has written and produced six full-lengths for the Portland, OR-based Kranky label, and has collaborated with the likes of Rafael Anton Irisarri (The Sight Below) and Kyle Bobby Dunn.

Colin Blanton AKA Ant'lrd has been forming busted loops, and found sound into tiny sonic universes that calm and swirl since 2009.
