New release: Ran Kirlian - Complex Silence 38 (The Shape of Memories)



The Shape of Memories is a long-form piece released at Complex Silence project (Volume 38). A combination of smooth textures with field recordings of a rainy autum afternoon conforms a soundworld to illustrate the passing of time thru our memories.

If your August is feeling hot and sticky, then prepare yourself for a cool and refreshing ambient rain shower as only ambient master Ran Kirlian can conjure up. Or, draw yourself a bath, light some candles, and perhaps snuggle up with a significant other and soak into this floating, drifting, comforting cocoon of sound.

In any of these scenarios (or whatever escape you choose to lose yourself in), Ran’s music is equally able to provide a soothing balm–a spacey and wondrously delightful atmosphere.

There’s really no reason to say anything else; the musical experience is far better than a wordy description. After a few minutes of listening, you won’t need further convincing.

The Physics of Heaven (with Oöphoi)
Cosmos Vol. I (with Jaja)


The Physics of Heaven is a collaborative work with italian ambient master Oöphoi (Gianluigi Gasparetti). It is a bright and ethereal jouney that explores the transition between life and death thru different spiritual traditions and mythologies.

Cosmos is the first collaborative work between Ran Kirlian and the german based electronic ambient composer Jaja (Jana Rockstroh). The result of this work is a bast and poweful flow of pure space-ambient music based on improvisations. It is also the first album on a series of electronic space-ambient dedicated to the magnificence of the Universe and the figure of one of its biggest explorers: Carl Sagan.


New release: Formations


Formations defines a journey to the core of Ran Kirlian's tribal-ambient landscapes prevously visited on albums like Sleeper, Melting Point and Limbo. Recorded between 2009 and 2011 and mastered by Max Corbacho. Available soon at alteraorbe.com






Aerthanna, the track of the previous video, is one of the pieces included in Formations. The video version, published in september 2009, is a live improvissation and is mostly the same version included in the album, capturing the fresh and primordial essence of a raw creative process. Most of the music of Formations is based on this kind of live performances during this era.
