Hendrik Weber (aka Pantha Du Prince) has been on a near-nonstop international tour since the May 2016 release of his first studio album in six years, The Triad. Created in collaboration with two like-minded musicians, NYC's Scott Mou (Queens) and Norway's Bendik Kjeldsberg (of Bell Laboratory), The Triad was both a return to, and a significant leap forward from, the form and style Pantha Du Prince had become known for. But The Triad had more to offer, and Weber has created a totally reworked ambient re-envisioning of The Triad album, which leaves behind the pulsating beats and most of the vocals of the original, creating something new, delicate, dreamy, and unutterably gorgeous.
Weber describes the concept behind The Triad Ambient Versions: "The Triad Ambient Versions bring the listener into a free space, as music consists of strictly folded sonic spaces that can be structured for the dance, for body-movement: the heart beat synchronizes the movement. The ambient versions have no beats and the listener gets a more transparent musical picture, an image full of light-atmosphere non-defined and free, for the human spirit to unfold its own way of receiving space folded into time. The straight columns of rhythm were taken away for a light wind of silence and non-structured fluid movements."
The accompanying download includes the additional bonus mixes: "The Winter Hymn (Ambient Version Instrumental)," "In An Open Space (Ambient Version)," "Dream Yourself Awake (Ambient Version)" and "Islands In The Sky (Ambient Version)."
