ANCIENT OCEAN (Beyond Beyond is Beyond)
Ancient Ocean is the long-standing solo project of Brooklyn ambient composer, J.R. Bohannon. After a steady run of superb CDr and cassette releases, Ancient Ocean's first long-player Blood Moon was received with much critical acclaim from the likes of Village Voice, Vice, Wallstreet Journal, NPR, and more. The project has seen a banner year opening for the likes of Stars of the Lid, Ben Frost, Winged Victory for the Sullen, Pharaoh Sanders, Lee Ranaldo, amongst others. His second full-length LP will appear in 2017 followed by full EU/US tours.

"When you're underwater, blurred images and sounds have a way of coming into their own focus. It's disconcerting at first: The current moves in an unknown rhythm, and then it becomes your center. That's where J.R. Bohannon's music undulates gracefully as AncientOcean." - NPR

"Ancient Ocean's sub-metal pool of guitar drones, deeper than Davy Jones's locker in a ketamine hole. " Village Voice

"Brooklyn’s J.R. Bohannon seems to illustrate the shapes and sights of American landscapes by bending some of its usual musical forms." Grayson Currin, Indy Week
