ian naismith Absolutely incredible work. As a textural musician myself who has endeared many in the ambient space for decades - this is truly a ominous, beautiful journey.... Favorite track: Jared By The Sea.

Ryan Johanson As I listen to this album, I picture myself standing at the edge of the ocean or a large river on a cloudy day, trying to comprehend the vastness of the water flowing before me. In this fantasy, my world has no color, but rarely has monochrome seemed so beautiful. Favorite track: Jared By The Sea.

about

riverrun's second album 'La Mer' was recommended by legendary graphic novelist Warren Ellis and contains the fan favourite tracks 'Jared By The Sea' and 'Five Mile Beach'. It was originally released in the spring of 2011.

Like 'Pentimento', the record was made by layering new experimental pieces with a range of old four-track tape recordings that I had in my archive. And to that end I spent most of Christmas 2010, back home in Devon, looking through boxes of my old tapes.

In the process I discovered a recording of the sea at the North Somerset coast, from the mid 1990s, when I was a teenager, and when my family had a holiday place at Doniford Bay (a piece also referred to in one of the better pieces from 'Pentimento'). I used this tape and a some other old recordings to piece together a series of tracks that referred to Doniford, and to various other seaside places I'd known in my life.

The initial intention was for the first six tracks to be released as a mini-album/EP, but when the label which was going to co-release it with me folded, I continued to work on the record and ended up with a double album, largely due to the fact that the last track is over half an hour long.
