About Me

Hello, my name is Darrell Burgan. I am an electronic/ambient musician who has recorded under my own name as well as under the name Palancar.

I've also recorded as part of several collaborations, including Cluster Balm, Copal River, Labrathisattva / Zen Rat, Flute of the Fallen Tiger, and have released music with Lucette Bourdin, John H. Lewis, Allen Goodman, Mike Metlay, David Herpich, and Scott Turner. I have played live quite a bit under the Palancar project, as well as part of the mindSpiral and Different Skies projects.

Also, for more than a decade I have hosted a live net radio show and concert series called Blue Water Drift Dive, which can currently be heard on radiospiral.net and viewed on YouTube.

Finally, I was the founder and owner of Earth Mantra Netlabel, a Creative Commons based ambient label, and Spirit Canyon Audio, a vendor of exotic music soundware. I was also the founder of StillStream, an internet ambient radio station that still broadcasts as an independent station. I am no longer associated with these organizations but strongly support their continued missions.

I have many albums released; nearly all are available online so that you can listen to them freely under Creative Commons. I encourage you to download them if you like what you hear.
