Peaceful ambient soundscapes to soothe your soul
Out now on CD and download
Released by 8 March 2019
The first in a new series of deeply atmospheric ambient albums.
Slow and drifting. Peaceful ambient soundscapes to soothe your soul.
The music on this album, like much of my music, is completely improvised and recorded live.
The starting point for this music is the sound of my now ancient guitar played with the ebow. I start with a blank canvas, play and few note and let the music grow. As these are live, improvised recordings, they can be a little rough around the edges.
The second Atmospheres & Textures album will follow soon.

A collection of deep and intense ambient music.
Positive and ethereal.
The last of three albums recorded at Redwood
Using a minimal set up (laptop, headphones, mini keyboard) in a new location presented challenges but meant I had to try new things. I found this very inspiring and ended up recording three Bing Satellites albums as well as starting a new project Theta Wave Orchestra.
While the music is slow and drifting, there is a brightness and electricity to these recordings.
A collection of quiet atmospheric music
Released 29 December 2018
After a 6 year wait, volume 4 of the Soothing Images series is finally here.
This is an album of peaceful ambient music using a virtual double tape loop system.
12 tracks with 12 accompanying images. Please note, the accompanying images are available via the Bandcamp download.
I play a few quiet, sparse notes on guitar or piano or whatever seems appropriate at that moment.
These notes feed into a long, slowly decaying loop.
Once I hear the first note I played repeat in that loop, I stop playing.
This first loop feeds into a second shorter loop.
As the first loop repeats and decays, it continues to feed into the second shorter loop.
The original notes start to layer and interact in ways that could not have been predicted. New chords and motifs are created.
While I play every note on each song, there is no way of knowing exactly what these notes will become.
It is quite magical to play a few notes for usually just over a minute and then listen as these notes take on a life of their own over the next several minutes.
All music written, performed and produced by Brin Coleman at MCos, Manchester during January and February 2018.

An album of vibrant, drifting ambient music, out now on CD and download
Released by 3 December 2018
Recording in a new location with limited equipment can bring challenges. Luckily, the location was a pleasant and quiet one and the limitations meant I had to try new things.
I found this situation very inspiring. This is the second of three Bing Satellites albums recorded at this location. The first few recordings by Theta Wave Orchestra were also recorded on this trip.
The music on this album is inspired by my future life with the love of my life, Alex, and the big beautiful skies of Idaho.
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.
Found has played at film festivals around the world, rightfully winning many, many awards (see foundmovie.net)
I was lucky enough to go to Brussels to represent the film at the 31st Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (pictures and more bifff.org for the European premiere where it recieved an enthusiastic reception.
