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, Flute of the Fallen Tiger, and have released music with Lucette Bourdin. I have played live quite a bit under the Palancar project, as well as part of the mindSpiral and Different Skies projects.

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.
