Landing was started in 1998 and includes Aaron Snow, Adrienne Snow and Daron Gardner. They have released eight critically acclaimed full lengths and a slew of EP's and 7" singles on labels including K Records, Geographic North, Strange Attractors Audio House, Ba Da Bing!, Music Fellowship, and These Are Not Records. Landing's music has been described as "inhabiting that amorphous space where time itself expands and contracts according to a delay pedal setting, and dream pop blurs into dream proper"- 8.0 Pitchfork. Inspired by first wave shoegaze, space rock, psych, krautrock, post-punk, post-rock, ambient, drone, and experimental musics, Landing forges these influences into "some of the best avant-prog and lo-fi space rock around" - 5 star review Mojo.
Landing has toured extensively across the USA, playing with bands including Windy & Carl, Kinski, Dirty Projectors, White Rainbow, Hood, A Place to Bury Strangers, The Twilight Sad, Bardo Pond, Sonic Boom, Paik, and many more. As veterans of the space-rock, shoegaze, psychedelic music scene, Landing has been played two Terrastocks and the Brainwaves festival.
An unknown future lies on the Other Side of time. Action is your power, the vehicle through which you can arrive there. If the present seems hopeless you must explore this otherway, the only way out. No one else can help you, you will find it yourself. The out of time way is the way of peace of mind. Pave the present with a pass-way to a better future, the different future, the future that is out of time. In this zone you are another side of yourself. This is not to be feared. Engage all sides of yourself to succeed on the other side: the future is the only ” time to move on.”

As many people as possible should experience his single-mindedly self-willed experimental-ambient sounds." - laut.de (Germany)
"..a variegated, brisk and well crafted, a teapot of deviated psychedelia, rancid electronica and sounds coming from forgotten offshoots of Ed Wood's "Plan 9 from outer space", all of the above floating in a broth of Biota and Zoviet France with exhausted batteries.." - Touching Extremes (Italy)
"The field recordings, otherworldy sounds and drones, and cinematic terrain take this into a kind of Sun City Girls meets Sunroof! territory. Quite dreamy and beautiful." –-Crucialblast.net
"Strange, unsettling, but oddly optimistic, it's the musical equivalent of a Bruce Conner sculpture." -Pop Matters
"With an organic approach to creation, these eastern and folk influenced experimental works rival some of the strangest electronic ambient out there - from drifting soundscapes to meditative trances." -Just Add Noise
From Aquarius Records:
"Here's a nice pairing, featuring Expo 70, who needs no introduction to the aQ readership, and Brainworlds, an Atlanta based guitarist whose work at least here rivals that of Expo 70. Both of these long tracks are recordings from a night of cosmic meditation in 2010 at the seminal performance space Eyedrum in Atlanta. Brainworlds' deep guitar tones float weightlessly in a shimmering expanse from his hypnotic loops and evocative cosmic solo work outs that come across like some lost Ash Ra Tempel jam getting remixed by Troum at their most stratospheric. Really stunning work, and this would have been great to see live given the reverberant acoustics of Eyedrum. ... Classic drugged-out space drone bliss from both Brainworlds and Expo 70. We're pretty sure this is a 60 minute tape; it's damn long regardless... but it's limited too, just 100 copies released from the Hooker Vision imprint run in part by Rachel Evans of Motion Sickness of Time Travel"

Duane Pitre is an American avant-garde composer, performer, and sound artist. His work often focuses on the interaction between electronic sound and acoustic instrumentation, chaos and discipline, as well as site-specificity. The composer also utilizes alternate tuning schemes that focus on microtonality, enabling him to explore unaccustomed intervallic relationships. He has created works for various instrumentation configurations such as string orchestra, his own bowed harmonic-guitar ensemble, string/wind ensembles, as well as solo works (including for himself).
Pitre’s 2012 album, Feel Free, received critical acclaim and was included on several ‘best of’ lists, including being named #37 on The Wire’s ‘2012 Rewind’ (out of their top 50 releases); #34 on The Wire’s ‘Subscribers’ Releases of the Year’ list; and #8 on Uncut Magazine’s ‘Wild Mercury Sound Top 112 of 2012’ list. In addition, “The Out Door,” Pitchfork’s experimental-minded column included Feel Free on its ‘Best of 2012: The Big Four’ list. The album was also included in several year-end lists for Dusted Magazine and many other blogs.
Duane used to...
Play guitar in The Camera Obscura (of San Diego).
Skateboard professionally for Alien Workshop.
Originality is hard to come by with electronic music, particularly in these laptop times. Tree Creature plays a fluid, organic blend of largely electronic sounds, by hand, augmented with occasional chanting and singing. It’s a heady mix, and intensely psychedelic.
During the set, I heard the occasional glimpse of possible influences, and refractions of artists I love: Klaus Schulze, Terry Riley, Plone… But the way in which they approach arrangement and performance was definitely their own. Everything seems to be suspended in the air around you: static, but always changing (I’m aware that’s an oxymoron… you have to be there).
They certainly defied my expectations: I had anticipated a worthy, ‘experimental’ set of low drones and furrowed brows, and was very pleasantly surprised by how playful and fun it was. At times I felt like I was watching ‘The Last Unicorn’, or riding a racing snail with Giorgio Moroder in the Never Ending Story.

Saw these dudes play at Bighaus awhile back. Was an amazing mix of pulsing strobe lights pushing an optical theremin into rhythmically structured submission - with pleasant acid washes of shortwave radio garble & whistlers +contact micedmetal chair and other real world objects over over amped and quite present - firmly joined together by a distorted bubbling bass creating the oozy bottom for it all to stew in. Quite Lovely.
