My new album ‘Surface Reflections’ is out now on Sound In Silence Records. Many thanks to George for releasing this and for the wonderful mastering job.
Surface Reflections consists of five long-form tracks of warm ambient, blending layers of field recordings, recorded in Hong Kong and focused on everyday sounds, with delicate loops of guitars and synths, manipulated and edited with effect pedals and laptop processing.
Surface Reflections is a sublime album of emotive melodies, hypnotic soundscapes and mesmerizing textures, carefully mastered by George Mastrokostas (aka Absent Without Leave) and highly recommended for devotees of ambient pioneers such as Brian Eno, Harold Budd and Steve Roach.
Released by Sound In Silence Records on CD, in a limited edition of 200, 15 July 2019.
Packaged in hand-numbered and hand-stamped burgundy cardboard envelope with the front cover image printed on polaroid style photo paper and an insert with the tracklist and the credits printed on mocha brown cardboard. Also comes bundled with a download code coupon and a Sound In Silence card.
