What are we up to?

 

 

 

 

Bev and Me have been toying with these ambient music ideas for several years now. It’s about time we acted upon them. We are both in the band Shadow Factory and enjoy ourselves hugely within the Jazz/Rock framework. But we also want to investigate a more relaxed, chilled style. A playing of music where soundscapes are generated without agenda, other than to just ‘be’.

 

As a form of explanation,

I have been a follower of ambient music since the 1970’s and fell asleep to Frippertronics, Satie, Tangerine Dream, Bill Nelson and others many many times. The requirement to pay absolute attention is removed and the opportunity to rest or to follow one’s own thoughts take over. The rough live sample tracks currently on our home page are slightly ‘lively’ but we are trying to sell ourselves after all. We sat down and played to a zoom hand recorder and just played a few tracks – so it should give an idea of what we sound like.

Future Music

There will be more to come and three or four properly recorded songs are nearly ready at which point we will make them available to download from this new site.

Thanks for visiting and hopefully we will be playing for you in the future.
