Steve Gibbs – Adrift

Post-classical composer Steve Gibbs’s debut solo EP, Adrift, is an ethereal piece of work which gorgeously brings together piano and strings with ambient electronic textures. Released in 2014, this solemn five-track EP sounds positively cinematic. It is not difficult to understand why Gibbs’ work has been used in movies and ad campaigns. The general lack of prominent melody throughout the album makes it perfect as soundtrack music as well as, of course, being ideal listening material when in a reflective and open mood.

The opening track ‘Adrift’ begins with an ambient soundscape that is astral and recalls Brian Eno’s Apollo in its expansiveness. The sounds of reversed guitars steadily filter into the mix. Soon there enters the muffled sound of piano chords which light up this tapestry of sound. We are certainly ‘adrift’ now: there is a sense of hanging in the ether to this track which sets the atmosphere for the rest of the EP. This sense of intedeterminacy is not a troubling one, but a feeling of liberation from constraints, a cool and calm lack of focus which is perfect for this sombre time of year. Softly dancing, arpeggio-like treble piano figurations come in out of this abstraction and are given warmth and depth by the prominent, swelling baseline.

Ambient and Electronic album from Neue – Structure

Designer and musician Mike Lemmon gave birth to his brainchild Neue about three years in the past. Earlier this year, he released an album named ‘Structure’ under the banner of this project. The 33 minute album features ambient soundscapes, drones, haunting beats and warm melodies in layers placed upon layers.

Structure commences with ‘Dawn’, which sets the mood for the album starting with the benign sounds of flowing water and chirping of birds. The track introduces a warm piano melody which prepares the listener for what is coming next in this introspective musical journey. As the intro track fades out, electronic percussion beats are introduced with ‘Into the Distance’. In a funky atmosphere set by this track, the listener knows that they’ve taken off on a soul-stirring journey and as the groovy bass discharges, it serves as fuel for imagination and visualization. With the second track ending into a distance, the journey suddenly takes a haunted route with high tempo beats, a cutthroat bass and high pitched notes with expansive reverberation.

An Interview with Stray Theories

We had the privilege of interviewing “Micah. A Musician/Composer. I release most of my music under the name ‘Stray Theories’.” Here’s what else he had to say.

Tell is who you are in 140 characters, twitter style?

Micah. A Musician/Composer. I release most of my music under the name ‘Stray Theories’.

Which part of world are you from and what inspires you about it?

I am from Sydney, Australia, but now I live in the South Island of New Zealand, two very different places

Where I live in New Zealand is quiet, but incredibly beautiful & scenic, always inspiring. Sydney is busy and buzzing with all sorts of life & culture, both places inspire me.

What makes Micah tick?

Music & any form of art/creativity.. new experiences & places, improvisation, live music, family.. they all inspire me and keep me motivated ..

Describe yourself as an producer artist what is your style?

I love to create deep, atmospheric, melodic sounds – especially densely layered soundscapes..
Over time my style/approach has changed alot. My first love has always been more minimal ambient styles of music and in the last few years I have gone back to that. I also love darker experimental music.

In Conversation With Owsey

Owsey is the producer of fine electronic Ambient Post Dubstep whatever music, if you haven’t heard it yet why not? There’s a download of his stuff right here. He was kind enough to respond when I asked him a few questions about himself and the results, well you decide. Press play and read on.

Tell is who you are in 140 characters, twitter style?

Owen, Owsey, music maker, human.

Which part of world are you from and what’s the best thing about it?

I’m from Northern Ireland. It’s renowned for its scenic offerings more than anything, but I love it for much more than just that.

Describe yourself as an artist what is your style?

I’ve no term/genre to summarise. It gets called ambient pop, chill wave, post dubstep etc., etc. But I’ve been making a handful of various styles for the past 6 months. I work a lot with photography, putting two & two together, music & imagery. It would be nice if people would refer back to the pictures when they hear my tunes, but it’s in no way a necessity.

In Conversation with Soft Note

Philipp Kalchuk is the Russian Born Ambient Composer known as Soft Note. He’s doing a mix for us broadcasting on the 4th February, for now we find out a little bit more about him.

Hello! Let’s go :)

Tell is who you are in 140 characters, twitter style
I am 25 years old man who loves music. I wanted to be a painter but I realized that creating landscapes with sound is more interesting.

Which part of world are you from and what’s the best thing about it?
I am from Omsk, Russia. It is Siberia. We have an interesting climate, up to +40c in summer and down to -40c in winter. I love the people who live here because they are very kind for living in such severe place, many people here have such a strong spirit.

Describe yourself as a producer what is your style?
I like to create atmospheric and detailed soundscapes. At first my style was futuristic but now I am very close to the spirit, nature and the universe. I also love experimental Ambient.

What thing makes you happiest about the current music scene?
The best in the current music scene is that it is easily accessible. You can find almost anything that you want. I love digital releases simply because it is hard to find rare or limited albums on CD in our city and I prefer to pay directly to the artist and download his or her albums.
