Album Notes
Ambient/Experimental guitarist Alan Imberg has strived from the outset of his career to mix the seemingly opposed musical textures of dark guitar with ethereal ambient qualities. Evidence of this can be found in the artists he refers to as early influences (Michael Schenker, early Metallica, Pink Floyd, Vangelis, and Brian Eno). From 1986 to 1992, he would play in a series of Heavy Metal bands, concentrating more on "headbanging" and performing in clubs throughout California.

In 1992, following a spiritual epiphany that would effect every aspect of his life, Alan retired from performance in the hard rock genre to focus on his personal life and a shift in creative direction.

In 1996, Alan emerged to provide the music soundtrack for a television documentary titled "The Joy of Reading", a locally aired program featuring an interview with then-U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Hass. The music was Ambient guitar instrumentals that earned praise by viewers. The following year, he provided music for another local film production to commemorate the history of the Northern California town Petaluma.

March 2000 marked the debut commercial solo offering from Alan Imberg when Dark Duck Records included his piece "Overview of Water" on the CD compilation "Ambient Landscapes 2: Passage to Chill". In 2001, Alan followed this up by establishing his own recording label (Brun's Son's Music) and releasing his 1st full-length CD titled "A Collection of Thoughts". Both offerings received critical praise and established Alan Imberg as an up-and-coming presence in the Ambient and Experimental music community.
