SPECTA CIERA + THE CIRCULAR RUINS :: Middle Distance
A collaboration between Specta Ciera (Devin Underwood) and The Circular Ruins (APK),
and as you might expect it is a rich electro-ambient offering, full of depth and subtle
sonic surprises. Both artists exhibit a range of working methods and styles in their
solo releases, and it is that diversity and the remarkable collaborative synthesis achieved
that make this release so musically fascinating. From the lush dronescape of the title track,
through the solo piano of Solitary Window, to the stray electrics of Tesla, the album seems
to present a new face at each turn, and yet there is a pervading mood and continuity
throughout that will certainly reward discerning listeners.
The album is available as a physical release or as a download.
