Ancient and modern come together on “I Am Here,” as veteran musician/composer Paul Ellis creates an electronic music portrait inspired by the mysterious rock carvings of the Chinook Tribe of Native Americans who lived in the Columbia River Gorge 15,000 years ago. Just as they left their mark etched in stone, so Paul Ellis paints in sound from a palette that includes synthesizers, sequencers, guitar, bass, and voice.

The three long form compositions on the album, two in the 20 minute range, and one almost 30 minutes in length, have a spellbinding quality that is constantly evolving, and draws favorable comparison to the electronic music artistry of Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra, Craig Padilla, Patrick O’Hearn, and Jean Michel Jarre. Pulsing sequencers provide forward momentum over a soundscape of lush keyboard orchestration, classic analog synthesizer tones, atmospheric textures, and otherworldly effects. While his previous release on the Lotuspike label drew rave critical reviews, Paul calls this new album: “my finest sequencer work to date.” He goes on to describe his music as creating “mesmerizing environments highly detailed, but open ended enough to allow breathing room.”

Fans of electronic music as well as those seeking an enchanting and entrancing listening experience will not want to miss this latest release by one of the premier artists of the genre on his timeless tribute to the continuity and kinship of life on earth.
