Slepian's work draws equally from the harmonic terrain he explored while performing with a Javanese gamelan ensemble, as well as his time spent building and modifying electronic audio equipment for studios and fellow musicians.

Gravitating towards improvisation and experimentation, Slepian built a breathtaking sound-world that stretched the briefest of moments into an eternity of detail and depth. In , Slepian self-released a series of cassette albums that built upon and perfected this practice, offering "New Music for Digital Orchestra".

New Dawn is one of those albums - an enthralling example of New Age euphoria, and early-electronic experimentation. New Music For Digital Orchestra? In , Slepian self-released a series of cassette albums that built upon and perfected this practice, offering New Music for Digital Orchestra.

New Dawn is one of those albums -- an enthralling example of New Age euphoria, and early-electronic experimentation. New Music For Digital Orchestra? Like so much New Age and ambient music from the s and '80s, the work of Don Slepian extends far beyond what initially greats the ear. A fascinating figure, Slepian began his sonic explorations during the late s, programming computers, building his own electronic circuits, and developing his own tape techniques.

Across the s, while living in Hawaii, his vastly ranging practice, in addition to recording his own work, included being a synthesizer soloist with the Honolulu Symphony, and a tester on the early internet as a member of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Comprised of two, stunning side long works, droning long synthesizer tones Korg PS rise and fall against rippling harmonics and ambience of a Mellotron and analog tape echo, sculpting a singular and immersive space which washes over the ear - the sound of bliss which carried a misunderstood form of radical hope into the darkening days of the Reagan and Thatcher years.

A brilliant sonic balm returning when we could use a bit of bliss. An absolutely essential alternate vision to the standard narrative of experimental music, it is issued on vinyl for the first time nearly 40 years after its original release.
