Andrew Heath // The Alchemist's Muse CD

¥ 1,980
  • Availability:

A new CD released in September 20 by British ambient writer Andrew Heath, who has a career of more than 2020 years but has not received much attention.I draw magnificent soundscapes with simple tools such as acoustic guitar, piano, and field recording.

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 11 songs, 6-sided panel digipak specification.

 

The Alchemist's Muse is a process-led body of work that further explores my obsession with minimalism, texture, tone and the detritus that litters our sound field such as radio static or mechanical noises. I use clusters of piano notes and guitar drones against warm layers of electronics and treated field recordings, often manipulating them with various forms of both tape machines and software to create the finished pieces. Building on techniques involving the longer sound recordings I used in previous albums such as'Evenfall' and'A Trace of Phosphor' , I have worked here with a more layered palette of sound.

I was also delighted to re-engage with two amazing artists, Bill Howgego adds a sublime bass clarinet to'The Alchemist's Muse' and the Romanian born poet, Maria Stadnika re-voices her work on a completely new version of'The Garden Reveals Itself '.

Recorded at my home in the Cotswolds, England earlier this year just as we all experienced a new silence imposed upon us all and for me, this album has emerged with a sense of calm, tranquility and slowly evolving soundscapes to balance our days.

I leave you to decide who or what are the alchemist and their muse.
