Darkly hypnotic guitar/Chapman Stick-based ambient soundscapes.

"Dream Tower Blueprints" is the long-awaited first solo release by Har, self-described "software-crazed" multi-instrumentalist with Beta-Lactam Ring Records recording artists Christus & The Cosmonaughts, and Cybergecko Music recording artists Jupiter Fly-By.

In a departure from the epic progressive/electronic/psychedelic rock of CaTC and the bizarre, quasi-comedic electro-pop of JFB, "Dream Tower Blueprints" features a sonic voyage into one of Har's noted areas of expertise: long, evolving textured soundscapes created almost entirely from real-time performances on guitar and Chapman Stick (a 10-stringed instrument with a range extending between deep bass and guitar). Both instruments are "processed beyond recognition" while still retaining the subtle hand-played "organic" nuances that set it apart from synth-based performances. No MIDI or synths were used.

While some of the compositions on "Dream Tower Blueprints" were achieved using interactive looping techniques similar in concept to Robert Fripp's legendary Frippertronics, others were instead played straight-through from start to finish so as to create an intentionally linear, yet richly-textured ambient soundscape inspired in part by György Ligeti's works.

Blessed/cursed with an almost photographic memory of his dreams going all the way back to his very early childhood, Har drew from this imagery as a source of inspiration for many of the pieces on "Dream Tower Blueprints". Ranging from hauntingly beautiful and hypnotic ("Fulcrum", "Dream Tower Blueprints", "Her Edges Blurred..."), to darkly pensive and edgy ("Urban Forge", "Fulcrum II"), to the emotional, eBow-driven coda of "Surcease" - the listener is taken deep into an almost visual realm of both darkness and light.
