This work is recommended for those who like old school ambient such as "Pearl" co-written by Harold Budd / Brian Eno.

The music is like a view overlooking a small windy hill. Contains 8 songs and comes with a DL code.

-----------------------------

Written during the beautiful and quiet springtime of 2020, Drawings from Imagined Cities represents a shift in my work from the intimate and at times darker and somber moods of'A Trace of Phosphor', to a more open and tonal sound very much reflective of that peaceful, unhurried environment. I found myself experimenting with a more dreamlike palette, warmer and quieter which reflected the days I spent walking and simply listening to the muted world around me. My ever present use of field recordings, seemed for me to represent small events that took place during the writing of this album, for example the blackbird in'Melancholia' which we would listen to each evening as the light faded in our garden.

So, informed by this'quiet time' that we all found ourselves in, I was also inspired by much of the new music I was listening to which seemed to resonate with this feeling of allowing oneself to drift as if in a daydream. My' rediscovery'of the body of work that became'Arcadia' seemed to point in that direction as well.

I had also started experimenting much more with my guitar and this album presents it more prominently than previous releases, but possibly not in ways that are easily recognisable. I loved the physicality of playing, with small movements bringing about a more controlled change in sound, but my continuing fascination with the piano remains.

Drawings from Imagined Cities was written very quickly over quite a short period. I'm very aware that many struggled during this time, but I luckily found it very cathartic and these pieces came about as much by a sense of compulsion as design. I' m hugely grateful to Elm Records for releasing this into the world and I'm also delighted that it's available on tape --a medium that I'm always drawn to.
