«Off Land was formed in 2004 by Tim Dwyer, an artist and musician from New England whose sound was originally shaped by "net" label culture's collaborative atmosphere of experimentation and peer feedback. His sound has been influenced by meditative music such as Javanese gamelan and minimal drone. Dwyer's music is sparse yet texturally intricate, lying in some sort of electro-acoustic limbo between Namlook's more dusty ambient collaborations, literal Phonography and contemporary classical experimentalism (from the artist's website.)

Off Land has works released at the ever excellent labels Resting Bell and Kikapu among other respectful labels of the internets.

Off Land's new EP is the first release from in a new series of works dealing with the theme of cycles. The result is an expression in repetition, time, rhythm, and flow...
01 Circadian - A twenty-four hour rhythmic cycle of the human body;
02 Records - Repetitive historical tracking of measurements;
03 Greywater - Recyclable water generated by domestic activities;
04 Cicadas - Insects, whose broods emerge in thirteen or seventeen year cycles.»
