Immerse in deep listening with Time Being's new album An Ocean of Time, inspiring blissful states of mind for relaxation, meditation, yoga and sleep.So as long as the music allows you to disconnect from where you are now, and go to a different place, then I have achieved my task as a composer.”— Jourdan LaikPORTLAND, OR, USA, October 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- With their acclaimed ambient electronic music project Time Being, spacemusic maestros Phillip Wilkerson and Jourdan Laik have been exploring the expansive sonic realms of atmospheric soundscapes for the better part of a decade, becoming favorites on ambient, sleep, and study Spotify playlists. On their third album, An Ocean Of Time, the duo venture into over 70 minutes of deep-drifting, time-melting, soul-stirring bliss that hovers delicately at the fringes of darkness and light. The album releases today on Spotted Peccary Music in CD format and in 24-BIT AUDIOPHILE, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats.

The vast and immersive ambient soundworlds that unfold throughout An Ocean Of Time foster an introspective, deeply-serene state of mind well-suited for yoga and meditation. The album’s fathomless spaces evoke a sense of ageless infinity. The sublime combination of synthesizers, electronics, spatial effects, and subtle swarms of orchestral wonder coalesce into a boundless auditory expanse where time is forgotten. Hints of cello and violin drift upon an open sea of textural ambience, as occasionally pulsing electronics or melodic illusions come into focus, hold us in suspense, and gradually dissolving back into the void.
With soundscapes as expansive as the mind will allow, Time Being musically ponder this question in an attempt to touch a perfect heart of awareness, presence, infinity, and the essence of being. The music invokes the question, “Are we in the cosmos or is the cosmos in us?”
In a recent interview, Laik revealed that he creates in layers as he composes, and Wilkerson said that often for him, composing is “setting up creative opportunities and then letting whatever happens next happen.” Laik continues the theme, “So as long as the music allows you to disconnect from where you are now, and go to a different place, then I have achieved my task as a composer.”
Together as Time Being, the artists share a deep fascination with time, eternity, and the infinite boundaries of the present moment as expressed through the limitless soundscapes of ambient music. An Ocean Of Time is the third Time Being release on the Spotted Peccary Label following A Dimension Reflected (2011) and A Place To Belong (2015).
An Ocean Of Time was mastered by Ben Cox, and is available for physical purchase in CD format and in 24-BIT AUDIOPHILE, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats. The CD version of the album arrives in a factory sealed 6-panel gatefold package that includes vibrant artwork, liner notes, a 4-page booklet, and exquisite package design by Daniel Pipitone, with an original photo by Matthew Cooper.
Time Being will be featured in the coming weeks on Spotted Peccary Music's popular Spotify "Impulse: Artist Curated" playlist, and on the label's YouTube live stream series: Transmissions; subscribe for updates at the links below.
