Delaware (USA) based Ben Fleury-Steiner (Infraction, Low-Point, con-v, Mystery Sea, Gears of Sand, Hypnos and Secret Sounds) is an experimental/ambient sound artist drawing from both electronic and acoustic sources including electric kalimbas, small modular synthesizers, guitar drones and effects pedals. Ben’s sound always embraces a sense of a "somewhere”, sonically, always warm with tons of layers and subtle details.
"Clearings" for Rural Colours became a way for Ben to let go of his anal retentiveness in his studio and start a fresh by embracing sound spaces inspired by nature as they evolved in real time. Three tracks make up the album, Wind-Up Bird’s Lament, Parallax, and Glade.
