Soothing Images 48-59

A collection of quiet atmospheric music

Released 29 December 2018

Bing Satellites - Soothing Images 48-59 - Quiet ambient album

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.
