Returning

Nashville, Tennessee, seems to be an unusual place to be if you’re a composer of electronic music, and Stan Link’s electronic music is in fact very unusual for the genre. Like his mentor Paul Lansky, Link creates electronic landscapes that are more emotional than procedural which makes his music the ideal proselytizing soundtrack to convert folks who think electronic music is too cerebral. Returning is almost neo-romantic, which is admittedly an odd way to describe music created in a studio based on found sound, but give it a listen and you’ll hear what I mean.
