Eric’s emphasis on melody and the warmth of the expansive ambient soundscapes that compliment these melodies really struck me as being very special indeed. His is a soothing, joyous, uplifting sound; the counterpoint to some of the darker ambient released on waag.
Eric is new to weareallghosts and I welcome him into the fold. His attention to detail and desire to create unique music is evident in this release, and I hope to work with him again.
Of his release, Eric said this ...
"On "Into Air (waag_rel134)" there are 7 tracks of varying lengths that meld into one another, receding from higher to lower energy, and shifting from structured compositions to free-form soundscapes. Amidst this ongoing movement is a cohesive (and slightly retro) sound palette, maintained by just a few synthesizers with piano and marimba in varied combinations. It is perhaps more melodic than most ambient music I'm used to hearing, but the slowly evolving compositional style lends itself well to this type of listening experience. Hence, I hope this album finds a unique space within listeners' environments, and offers something special to anyone willing to explore the album."I hope you will enjoy "Into Air (waag_rel134)" as much as I have and hope it does find that unique space in your hearts. As always, I would welcome all the support you can give Eric.
A 320kbps version of this release will be available, for free, over on Archive with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.
