Adrian Lane, from Southend, Essex, UK returns to Whitelabrecs with his latest masterpiece, 'Vignettes' following ‘The Fleet’ (2021) and ‘Missing The Crows’ (2022). Having previously released with respected labels like Preserved Sound, Hibernate, Oscarson and Chitra, Adrian’s musical journey now spans 13 albums, not to mention the music he self-releases from time to time.

Adrian Lane's musical career began in his teenage years playing in bands before ultimately evolving into an 11-year solo career. His creative process involves recording and mixing at home, blending acoustic instruments with synths and virtual elements, whilst simultaneously exploring visual art ideas to accompany his music. Drawing inspiration from a diverse array of genres, his influences include luminaries such as Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Johan Johannson, Hildur Gudnadottir, and Ryuichi Sakamoto.

'Vignettes' is a captivating exploration of Lane's sonic landscape. The album features work created using a minimal studio setup, with a focus on piano and strings. Musically, there are two distinct aspects to the album. Roughly half the tracks revolve around the piano, while the other half are string quartet-based, showcasing Lane's ability to compose using counterpoint and the techniques of stretto fuga. The interplay between the piano and strings creates a dynamic journey for the listener and this is enhanced by the fact that the instruments vary between real and virtual.

True to its name, 'Vignettes' unfolds like a series of evocative snapshots. 'Vignette: a brief evocative description, account, or episode' - The dictionary definition pretty much describes the conceptual approach for this album. It gathers together a collection of musical vignettes, each track telling a story or setting a mood in a concise period, inspired by haiku poems; the pieces capture fleeting moments of emotional depth. The work is complete with Adrian’s own photomontage artwork, which is used across the three panels of the gatefold sleeve.

Whitelabrecs is a record label established in 2016, specialising in highly limited runs of vinyl-effect CDrs and occasional digital-only editions. The discography focuses on contemporary Ambient music, including Drone, Modern Classical and Electro Acoustic.
