Glenn Deardorff: Primordial Mariner

By Published: February 1, 2001
I need not go into lengthy detail about Primordial Mariner other than to say many, many people trust my call on what is quality and what is not. I simply know my space music very well. Read on for the scoop from the “EER man”.

Deardorff does a superb job of handling the genre called Space Music. His material; composition, production, recording, and performance is highly professional. Primordial Mariner is as stimulating as Jonn Serrie’s 80s work, as unique as Robert Carty’s cosmic craft, and runs neck and neck with Gerber’s Spacecraft excursions.

This “concept” album CD release uses the best in sequencing, drones, drifts, fades, warps, phasings, crescendos, chilling moments, and tripped out awe-struck soundings on the cosmic travel scale. Crank this one up next time you feel like your home is “up there” and one day you will “go back”. High recommendations!
