Sectio Aurea

Sectio Aurea

Multi-instrumentalist Mike Hunter uses the name Ombient to make live music befitting of any situation. During his many concert outings he has realized a range of performances - from those of great portent down to the more ethereal and diffuse.

Possessed by a unique atmospheric sensitivity Hunter is currently exploring the sonic territory of Spacemusic's 1970s Berlin-School - utilizing a number of classic electronic instruments, among them a substantial three cabinet "Synthesizers Dot Com" modular system.

The new Ombient CD is a studio realization called Sectio Aurea (Synkronos Music). The engaging locomotive power of Hunter's sequencer manipulations and breakdowns bring a pumping pulse to Sectio Aurea - a work perfectly in tune with itself and its maker.

Sectio Aurea is available at:
