Bing Satellites news and releases
Layered and very chilled ambient music.
Out now on CD and download
Released by 21 March 2017
Further extensions of reality.
Three dreamlike ambient soundscapes.
Each track is composed of several improvised layers performed on piano, synths, with voice and on ebowed guitar, each playing in a loop of different length. As the loops repeat at different times, the music layers interact in different and unique ways: notes, motifs and harmonies that happen just once, never to be repeated.
Three peaceful and drifting ambient landscapes.

Peaceful and drifting.
A slow, ethereal, epic ambient landscape.

Further tales from the refurbished studio.
After too many months, I rewired my studio and connected everything together, along with a few new toys. This is the first album in many months that takes advantage of the range of synths I have on offer.
The music on this album is completely improvised.
I press record and play notes into a long, slowly decaying loop and see where the music takes me.
Layered and very chilled ambient album out now CD and download
Release date: 10 December 2016
A very chilled out, atmospheric ambient album from prolific ambient composer Bing Satellites.
I am particularly proud of this album. I am forever trying to find new ways of creating music. This album, like its predecessor How To Make A Person Whole Again, is made up of improvised layers of different lengths. While when they were initially recorded they were played in a way that deliberately interacts with what came before it, each time they repeat, they interact in ways that could not be forseen.
Each track is generative: several layers of music in loops of slightly different lengths (think Music for Airports), so the music drifts and the different elements interact in different ways as the music progresses.
Reflective and very chilled ambient album out now CD and download
Released by 12 November 2016
Recorded at my home studio while recovering from a hernia operation.
With lots of time, little energy and unable to do pretty much anything else, I spent a few quiet days making music.
In this particular physical state, the music was never going to be uptempo but I found myself having time to reflect. This coloured the music I created.
The tracks on this album are made up of several layered phrases, each in loops of different lengths (similar to Eno's Music for Airports). These phrases shift and interact in different ways as the music progresses.
Daniel Land - In Love With A Ghost
Daniel's first solo album co-produced by Bing Satellites
CD and download available to pre-order
Released by 25 November 2016
Daniel Land returns with his first solo album, three years in the making.
I was heavily involved with the album throughout that time. It is Daniel's most complex album to date expanding on his original shoegaze sound into something deeper.
As well as myself, there are contributions from members of his former band Daniel Land & The Modern Painter, Andrew Saks (Sway/ASAKS), Gerard Hopes (Little Nova Sound), and members of Daniel's new live band.
This is a truly wonderful album, something I am very proud to be part of.
As you may know, I am also a member of Daniel's new live band.
We will be celebrating the launch of the new album with a gig on the evening of Sunday 27th November at our favourite venue, Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green, London, hosted by the very wonderful Goodsouls Promotions.

Coming of age horror moving featuring my music
The complete soundtrack is now available to download - free for a limited time!
Marty is the ideal fifth grader. He gets good grades, listens to his teachers, and doesn’t start trouble in class. But darkness is beginning to fall over Marty’s life. The kids at school won’t stop picking on him, his parents just don’t seem to understand him, and now Marty must grapple with a terrible secret that threatens to destroy life as he knows it – his big brother is a serial killer! Brotherly love is put to the ultimate test in this emotional coming-of-age story that descends into full-blown horror.
I am very proud to be part of this truly original film.
There aren't many films which combine the depth of story and character which the darkest horror elements.
The movie also features music from Aaron Marshall as well as a score by Magician Johnson & Greg Wright.
