The Horizontal Coalition is the brainchild of DJ/Composer/Producer and sound man Ambient Shane-a home for Shane's recorded music.
Alter ego name Ambient Shane real name Shane Piper, founder of "The Horizontal Coalition" or "THC" Shane is someone who takes inspiration from recording every day environmental sounds mostly on a [Apple iPhone]
Shane's work has been compared to bands such as "The Orb" and music such as The "KLF Chill Out" and others from the mid 90's.
Shane was born in "Bude north Cornwall" but grew up in "South Devon England" and was always fond of records and tapes from a very young age, in those days Shane was mostly listening to dark wave music from the early eighties, bands such as "Depeche Mode" and "Gary Newman" which he continues to listen to today. In 1990 Shane's ambient adventure started when he was introduced to the "KLF Chill Out" album and "The Orb's adventures beyond the ultraworld" Those two albums changed Shane's life, Shane moved to "Totnes in Devon" in late 1994 with lots of records and started DJing and playing chill out music at small parties and gatherings on Dartmoor, it was from this time that people started to call him [Ambient Shane] and it has stuck ever since. Over the years Shane has moved his sound to more complex ambient electronica. In March 2010 Shane was invited to the "Future Sound of Exeter" "Phonic FM" HQ by ambient ace [Paul Giblin] to broadcast a live two hour radio show and tell the twenty year "Orb story" that included a live phone interview with the man himself [Dr Alex Paterson] ,all the glitchs with that live broadcast made it all the better , Paul said to Shane "we have been Orb'd. Shane has played at nights such as "Twisted Toadstool" and the legendary "Tribe Of Frog" nights in Bristol .
In 2011 Shane put down his decks and moved to a sleepy rural area of Somerset far away from the Big bad city and the bright lights to concentrate on creating his own music , "a unique interpretation" of what he thinks ambient should look and sound like....
