Melbourne based, London born ambient musican. This period in Australia is giving me some valuable time to spend on developing some sense of sound. My first EP [ AURELIA ] has now been released as a FREE DOWNLOAD by Blurry Pup Recordings - http://blurrypup.com/BPR006 Go get it! I hope some people enjoy these pieces, comments make my day.. even if critical I'd like to know what you all think.

[ BlurryPup ] We really like the varying moods on this one, from melancholy to hopeful and uplifting. Guitar on Aurelia by Sima and Michael tells us there's more to come as a split EP with 2 international musicians is planned for mid 2011

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Pointing to illusive moment and tender keys [ Aurelia ] partakes the subtle side of ambient music while saturating various basic components from an array of different genres, bridging classical keys with minimal atmospheres and the post-rock feel well integrated within, the end result of [ Aurelia ] is an instrumental album that reveal a story of an conceivable sadness and hope. Each and every note interpretation lead to a bigger picture, a picture that relates to story, a story that leads to a thought and a thought that vanishes to an emotion.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
