Copal River is the collaborative music project of Scott Turner and Darrell Burgan.
Sometime a few years ago, these two artists decided to take a weekend off, travel to a lovely retreat by the water, and spend a few days immersing themselves as deeply as possible in some live ambient improvisation. They called this their first "ambient weekend". While they had worked on projects together before, such as with ambient trio Cluster Balm, this face to face improvisation struck a chord deep within each of them. The music that came from these sessions seemed to them to be the embodiment of what their ambient music was meant to be.
In the months and years that followed, Darrell and Scott enjoyed several other such ambient weekends with each traveling to the others home state and studio. Naturally, they made a point to record these sessions, and with encouragement from family and friends decided to release them.
Their self-titled debut album Copal River and sophomore release Ancara have enjoyed critical acclaim as well as extensive airplay on numerous radio programs, including Star's End and Hearts of Space.
Darrell and Scott hope that you find this music as fulfilling to listen to as it was to make.
