Artist Chart: White Rainbow
- Words: Fred Miketa
Portland-based, post-ambient producer Adam Forkner has a definite pension for the stranger side of things (on his MySpace page he states he wants to play in "healing huts"). On his latest offering, Prism of Eternal Now, Forkner's universe is composed of rich, delayed textures, Eastern drums, and engulfing feedback. Recording for both Marriage and Kranky Records, this young mystic may be the next Eno. Look for White Rainbow on tour with Dirty Projectors and YACHT in a town near you.
Prism of Eternal Now is out October 1, 2007 on Kranky.
