about

Originally released in 2009 via n5MD, "Where the Land Meets the Sky" finds Stephen Hummel honing his subtractiveLAD sound to such effect that it allows him to concentrate on conveying his deepest feelings rather than the processes that go into music making. The album serves as an extension of Hummel's previous album "Apparatus" (2008) and effortlessly flows between such genres as shoegaze, armchair electronica, post-rock, and classic ambient. Stylistically it seems far away from his debut "Giving up the Ghost" and in theory it is. Yet, Hummel has lead us on a journey that for the patient has yielded great rewards.

CDs of this double-album can be purchased from n5MD (limited stock):

"Hummel has done five albums in as many years but I’d be happy with another five. I’d love to see where the subLAD voyage takes us. For this is a truly ambient experience fusing feelings and landscape. And I suspect the journey isn’t quite over yet." - [sic] magazine

"... the nearly-two-hour 'Where the Land Meets the Sky' is as close to a definitive statement of the subtractiveLAD art as has been presented to date. It also bears mentioning that with the release Hummel realizes n5MD's “emotionally experimental music” credo in grand and seemingly effortless style." - Textura
