Field Hymns

Ancient Ocean – ‘Neró: A Collection of Works 2010-2016’ C31
Brooklyn’s Ancient Ocean has long occupied a unique & sublime tonal intersection of cosmic ambience and earthly heft, a line hard for most to straddle, much less with such success. On his latest for Field Hymns, John Bohannon’s instrumental soundscapes illuminate a curious mind at work: by keeping these tracks in their mostly skeletal form, they provide a lens into his process from the ground up and deliver a nuanced minimalist program of an artist at the top of his game.
