Dweller At the Threshold
DAVE FULTON: HARD PARTICLES
recorded works of Dweller At the Threshold contain a variety of sonic
seasonings that echo the likes of TD, perhaps Klaus or perhaps Steve Roach at
times. They feature powerful sequential bursts, combining with experimental
soundscapes to form a shifting tapestry of synthetics. HARD PARTICLES is a
stunning excursion into the realm of Neu-ambient space music fusing dark,
undulating tone clusters with dense, warm melodies that swirl in and out of
the supersonic mix. The resulting synthetic mélange is spiced up by spatial
effects, which serve as a conceptual bridge between pieces, thus tying the
albums whole into one surreal, cerebral experience extraordinaire.

DWELLER AT THE THRESHOLD:
GENERATION-TRANSMISSION-ILLUMINATION <ECD 2015>
The long awaited
follow up by DAT to their debut album NO BOUNDARY CONDITION expands even further their
progressive electronic music formulation. GENERATION-TRANSMISSION-ILLUMINATION consists of the three extended
title tracks, which flow together effortlessly to create an electronic
montage, a surreal sonic landscape of pulsing sequencer, dramatic themes and
dark tone colors. Echoes of Tangerine Dream lie buried in the mix, but the
music of DAT forges a new more modern fusion of classic analog
vibrations spliced together with ambient age synthetic sound that transcends
the origins from which it comes.

"…a solid CD from beginning to end,
without a single song that is either dreary or drab." The package explores
a variety of aural vistas with exotic tones, and for those who seek a truly
stimulating sonic trek this adventure simply can't be beat."

"High tech quantum science is the
theme, translated into pure tonalities that drift into slow burn, sending the
listener tumbling through various stellar photospheres."
/ POST BROTHERS
"This is one of the most enjoyable
electronic albums I've heard in years…." Extensive sequenced patterns
create a rhythmic bed over which various lead synths go whizzing by your head
and off into space. If you've heard a better space music album this year I
want to know about it!"

"D.A.T.'s music moves the listener
through portals, each revealing a new 'scene' with its own unique cast of
characters, almost as if it were a soundtrack to a night of dark and restless
dreaming. Their arsenal consists of both analog and digital equipment, from
which they produce some wildly original sounds and textures. ….this is
definitely one of the better purely electronic releases I've heard in some

Dream, then you will really enjoy this disc."

"Bell-like tones, sequencer patterns,
and mini-moog effects all blend and shine through the basic pulsating tracks,
elevating this music to an inventive level that allows for something new to
emerge. This is upbeat electronic music, not particularly meditative, yet
hypnotic and compelling in its free-flowing way."
"This band comprises three
synth/keyboard virtuosos who seem seriously intent on capturing the fancies
of fellow electronic aficionados. On most counts they're likely to
