Of The Seven Seas

Atmospheric ambient album out now on CD and download

Bing Satellites - Of The Seven Seas

A collection of quiet piano-based songs, recorded between December 2011 and March 2014.

These songs are in part inspired by Tristan Da Cunha, the most remote inhabited island in the world. It can only be reached by a seven day boat journey. I find the idea of peace and quiet and isolation appealing but this place goes beyond anything you can imagine - a tiny volcanic island thousands of miles from anything... anything!

The first five songs were recorded for Album In A Day volume 8 and indeed, versions of the first three tracks appeared on that album. Some other tracks were originally intended to be released on a Soothing Images album but many of those recordings were plundered for other projects. The ones included here seemed to fit quite well with the atmosphere I wanted.

While the people of Tristan Da Cunha in some ways lead an idyllic life, they must work hard and be very self-reliant. They are at the mercy of nature - occasional extreme weather, illness and living on a volcano. I find it fascinating.
