Rudy Adrian: As Dusk Becomes Night

Space ambient master Rudy Adrian’s latest album has a pretty specific vision, capturing the feeling of being alone in a picturesque nature scene right as the sun has set and the night has fallen, and the sky has turned various shades of purple. There’s something very sweet about this album; even though it’s painting aural pictures of nighttime, it’s focusing more on the magical feelings and spirits rather than the darkness. Several tracks have sounds similar to chirping insects, and “Moa Caves” starts with trickling water, so it all feels very in tune with nature. Some of the later tracks like “Western Wind” get spacier, but not necessarily darker. By “Sunny Day”, we’ve made it to dawn, and everything is clear, crisp, and rejuvenating.
