James Johnson - The Butterfly Chamber hyp2237
2002. The second Hypnos release by James Johnson (following ENTERING TWILIGHT from a couple years back), BUTTERFLY CHAMBER is a refined, delicate and beautiful piece of work. James Johnson has advanced his art, especially from the standpoint of musicality, and the incorporation of more traditional elements, into an ambient style.
Johnson himself describes BUTTERFLY CHAMBER as follows, in his latest email newsletter:
"With a sonic pallet of generative ambient textures, minimal piano, and live acoustic performances from Chris Short (Ma Ja Le) & Susan Johns, The Butterfly Chamber features richly woven textures and sinuous atmospheres."
