Anu Kirk Ascendant (like many of their labelmates) create something between ambient music and soundtrack composition.

Like a cooler Tangerine Dream, if they had pursued "Love On A Real Train".

Meticulously crafted synth soundscapes propelled by sequences and subtle percussion move along or spin in place.

Great for backgrounds to your favorite activities, or listening to in detail. Favorite track: The Age of Earth and Stone.

Φοίνιξ This album covers an immense amount of distance in deep space. As such, this release does help when listened to as background music. Excellent music to listen to while staring at digital stars and discussing your place in the universe. Favorite track: Reactive Light.

恐らくシーケンサーで作っているであろうサイン波のメロディはずっと聴いてても飽きない不思議な心地よさがある。 Favorite track: Sub-Orbital Forest.

Welcome to the [EX]panded edition of Ascendant's landmark album, Meridian. This double-album features four new ambient re-workings of your favorite tracks, and for the first time ever, a physical release in a deluxe 6-panel double-cd digipack.

If you are here because you heard our music in the game Stormland by Insomniac Games, you're in the right place - this is the album from whence the music came.

10,000 years from now. 10,000 light years from here. A New Land, come of age into a time of abundance, transcendence and enlightenment. The Age of Earth and Stone, where…

An enlightened man exists alongside post-singularity machine AI that manifest as floating coils of light. Frozen clouds are summoned and then flash-melted to provide the planet’s water, and liquid has memory.

A planet where habitats the size, shape & semblance of mountains hover over large bodies of water. A planet where enormous belts of sub-orbital forests scrub the ozone and provide oxygen.

A world where gravity bends, but time does not. A world of alchemical transmutation, elemental summoning, and abundance.

The Age of Earth and Stone.
