Softer and darker, yet more open and minimal than previous releases, Evenfall continues my fascination of, and experimentation with, ‘found sounds’ and treated field recordings. which I weave with minimal electronics and delicately phrased piano. All placed precisely within immersive soundscapes. Evenfall also introduces two new elements in my work, guitar and tape manipulation which I balance with sounds as diverse as the clicking of electric fences and the drone of ship’s engines.
Evenfall is inspired and informed by the dimming of daylight and the coming of night from one evening late last year. I found myself recording in remote woodlands. I stood still, pressed record, darkness fell, it started to rain… “as I remained silent, so the sounds around me came to life.” The result is magical. Filagree piano work, dictaphone tape textures from another age and soaring quiet cloud guitar.
Evenfall also develops the elements of voice and more traditional instruments with stunning and sublime soprano saxophone by Lydia Kenny, lending an otherworldly beauty to ‘The Still of Evenfall’ and the intimate yet powerful voice of UK based, Romanian poet, Maria Stadnicka on ‘The Garden Reveals Itself’.
