"Moody, atmospheric, and just dripping with primal energy"
~ Bill Binkelman, Wind & Wire

Leland Burr is an improvisational trio formed by synthesist Larry Derdeyn. Percussionist/vocalist Geoffrey Brown (of the prog-rock group Paranoise) and vocalist Jim Cole round out the line up. Hover is their third collection of live improvs. This is a very organic sounding release. The electronics are kept to a minimum, with the players focusing on exotic acoustic timbres such as Tibetan singing bowls, steel cello, tamboura, kalimbas, etc. Minimal percussion loops snake in and out of the mix as the music draws into its ambient landscape, but this is by no means a rhythmic disc. The beats are subtle, peaceful and understated... blending into the total atmosphere rather than serving as a foundation. Much of this disc has no beats to speak of... just waves of sound moving over you.

~ Allen Welty-Green, Ambient Visions

Geoffrey Brown: percussion and live percussion loops

Larry Derdeyn: synth, kalimbas, singing bowls, water pot, buzz drum, bells, Bolivian flute, percussion

Jim Cole: vocals, overtone singing, steel cello, tamboura, and live looping

The brainchild of keyboardist Larry D, Leland Burr has been evolving since 1997 as an improvisational performance ensemble that sets no boundaries and eagerly explores uncharted musical territory. Whether playing at intimate home concerts, cafes and coffee houses, or performing at larger venues such as the opening and closing galas for the Wadsworth Atheneum's Salvador Dali exhibit, Leland Burr is a versatile group that feeds off the energy of the moment and draws inspiration from their environment. This eternal pursuit of creativity makes each and every performance unique unto itself. Surreal hypno-ambient world grooves and beyond...

Their debut CD Beeland Lure and most recent CD Hover were recorded at Paranoise Productions' ArtSpace studio. These CD's capture the mystery, spontaneity, tranquility and primal essence that is Leland Burr.
