More is an album of music inspired by Manchester, my home town. The city is hectic and noisy and full of every kind of person from around the world. And I live very close to the centre. While it is constantly busy here, I can escape into my light and airy little studio. This album is a product of this great city and that is reflected in the sound - it is drifting and ambient but also gritty and pretty loud in places. There is a reinterpretation of my song Where I Stand (from Nothing For Miles) plus a poem from Robert Matejko aka Robby Baby Dark Poet of Amour (recorded by Karl Hamilton) inspired by my music and a vivid dream Robby once had about The Sun.
Preview / download links: www.bfwrecordings.com/releases/CloserContactMeteer/Geography3 The third collaborative (studio) album from Magnus Larsson and Björn Asserhed. This is abstract ambient music in its purest form: the sound is quiet and atmospheric but organically electronic. It is almost as if the music is floating on the wind or through the ether on a shortwave radio. This is another wonderful album from Magnus and Björn. We should have another live album from these two very soon. soundcloud.com/closercontact soundcloud.com/meteer
An album of quiet songs performed on piano, ebow, synths and android phone using a couple of different looping systems. Available now on gatefold CD. Download available from Monday 21 April 2014. Listen / more details: www.bingsatellites.com/releases/ofthesevenseas 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.
