"The two go hand in hand like a dance: chance flirts with necessity, randomness with determinism. To be sure, it is from this interchange that novelty and creativity arise in Nature, thereby yielding unique forms and novel structures." --Eric Chaisson

"Random occurrences. Sunlight bursting through treetops. Accidental beauty. These things are not just confined to nature and landscape. Le Berger is Montreal native Samuel Landry. Deeply moved and inspired by Ithaca Trio's Music for Piano & Patience (Home Normal, 2013), he sought out to make new material, choosing to work with methods that he felt were similar. Unused guitar samples from fifteen years ago became the sole source material, providing the album with a wistful, folky kind of ambience. While ambient textures provide a blissfully drowsy background, the guitar evokes and mirrors the calm feeling of leaves rustling in the breeze, or light on the ocean exploding into millions of individual flecks as the waves come in to shore. As random as they may be, it never startles the listener. It is music mirroring life. A work born from a marriage of chance, randomness and composed elements, it results in Le Berger's most evocative and poetic work to date." --Fuzz Lee
