"The transcendental object is matter that behaves like thought and it is a doorway into the imagination. This is where we're all going to live." - Terrence McKenna

Adrien75, a longtime friend and influence, broadcasts his first full-length at Psøma from his home studio in Oregon - an hour of deep listening and guitar improvisation titled Contemplating The Transcendental Object. The album consists of six live takes using electric guitar and a small array of effects devices, and explores tonal hills and bends with foggy, half-recollected curvatures of glissando and lethargic strums. Landscapes of green forestry coated in golden sun beam outward from the wow and flutter of Adrien's instrument, before being momentarily retracted and replaced with storm clouds, hints of warm rain, overcast humidities. Transcendental Object plays out in a similar way as classic loop-centric ambient works by Fripp & Eno or Stars of the Lid, although Adrien's inimitable fingerprint as a guitarist draws a line through these things and places us in an atmosphere entirely new, save for perhaps small islands of memory, reference points to Adrien's earlier guitar paintings on Coastal Acces, itself being a full eighteen years ago now. Adrien's work continues to hum and crackle with life and movement that other guitarists may have overlooked or bypassed, and we are all the happier to act as a vessel for these evocative performances.
