* * * * * Ben Woods * * * * *

Ben Woods is a full time student at the University of Plymouth UK, where all of his music is written and recorded. His music is written to audibly represent recent emotions and feelings with regard to situation, experience and circumstance.

His music is the most honest form of expression to himself. His latest work is predominantly piano based but Ben is always working on the newest approach he discovers. He has been working on a series of acoustic guitar lead soundscapes and has also been experimenting with turning written acoustic songs into beautifully layered drones.

‘Moments’ – 30 April 2009

‘Following in the creative vein of his last album, it engulfs the listener in a welcoming wash of processed piano and strings, leaving plenty of room for solemn introspection or blissful repose. Crystal clear production and delicately arranged layers continue to mark Ben’s dedication and passion.

‘Nymh: Realms of Detachment’ – 27 October 2008

Constructed primarily from the sounds of a processed piano, this album swells and fades in a most pleasantly organic fashion. Think Stars of the Lid on piano and you might be close. With vast plateaus of reverb and subtle but effective use of distortion, Nymh conjures up a thick atmosphere that you can almost taste at times.
