Oceanic is undulating ambient minimalism floating upon dreamy and somewhat hazy eddies in a slow-moving stream of wonder. Jeff Greinke's second album upon his return to Projekt -- and 24th overall in a 40-year career -- marks a departure from last year's post-classical A Thousand Year Flood. Here, the electronic sounds are processed and often stacked to create complex textures, chords and harmonies. The timbres are distinct, formed with subtle detail, capturing the ebb and flow of emotional whirlpools surging like briny ocean turbulence within one's heart.

'These nine compositions,' Jeff reflects, 'involve abundant sonic motion with multiple layers moving from side to side, front to back, and at varying speeds and dimensions. This motion conjures large bodies of water with their long rolling waves, strong currents and cross-currents, and big slow moving tides. Hence, the album titleOceanic. That said, there's also a prominent atmospheric aspect to this work -- a common thread for me over the years -- lending a mysterious and suspended quality to many of these pieces. In this way I think of more than just large bodies of water; the scenery also includes misty mountains, big clouds, steady rain, the jet stream, and far-off frozen places with massive drifting icebergs.'

'This music comes from a period of intense exploration intended to expand my musical palette through an empirical process of heavily manipulating, treating and then layering sounds. The pieces are entirely sample- and synth-based, less minimal, and don't involve other players. This nine-month period was an immensely exciting and fertile time of discovery for me.'

Oceanicis an album designed to draw the listener into a richly harmonic and deeply textured, somewhat strange and often beautiful, world of exploratory sound.
