On Horizon, their third album for Spotted Peccary, Frore & Shane Morris seamlessly blend organic and electronic sounds, fusing ambient synthesizers with tribal percussion and traditional instruments such as Navajo flute, fujara and Aztec death whistle. Horizon continues the celestial theme of their previous two albums, Blood Moon and Eclipse. For all time, the stars have beguiled, have evoked awe and wonder. Though these five pieces capture the grandeur of the skies, this album was named for its composition. The title Horizon inspires the joy of collaboration—discovery—as the exchange of ideas takes a composition to a beautiful and unexpected place.
This collaborative spirit extends beyond Frore & Shane Morris as three of their sonic influences join the next evolution of their sound. Shamanic ambient musician Mark Seelig plays the Indian Bansuri flute on “Agape,” shamanic percussionist Byron Metcalf adds frame drum to the beat of “Ocean of Fire” and experimental ambient composer Dirk Serries lends dreamlike guitar to “Lost in Wonder.”
