Estuaries – ‘Foundation Studies’
Beautiful ambient bedroom recordings of piano and violin with a few “found sounds” and some light electronic processing thrown in for good measure. Below are my two favourites from the 25-minute Foundation Studies, which is simply an ultimate chillout CD waiting to happen.
Delicate and safe timbres all around, the first track swells by way of layering and employs a grand crescendo to meet an epic end. One of the talented film-makers over at Vimeo should really fathom an accompanying video for this. Perhaps featuring a babbling brook, and a fawn.
