Also the name of a state park in Georgia, experimental duo Cloudland Canyon carry on the abstract electronic sounds pioneered by such artists as Ash Ra Tempel. The project began in 2002 when Kip Uhlhorn, the Brooklyn-based guitarist for Panthers (and prior to that screamo band the Red Scare) met German multi-instrumentalist Simon Wojan when Uhlhorn was touring Europe. Following a brief recording session and a few years of track-trading between Uhlhorn and Wojan -- along with contributions from Jacob Morris (the Double), Jerry Fuchs (Turing Machine, the Juan Maclean), and Kelly Winkler (wife of Uhlhorn) -- Tee Pee released the debut Requiems der Natur 2002-2004 in late 2005. The band moved to Kranky for their 2007 album Silver Tongued Sisyphus and released a 30-minute single-track album, Exterminating Angel, later that year on Holy Mountain. Lie in Light followed on Kranky in early 2008. Cloudland Canyon returned to Holy Mountain for the issue of Fin Eaves in the Fall of 2010.
