Quiet I’m listening.

“English’s music is recognised as exploring “environmental and musical sources and is highly regarded for its intelligent invocation of perception, memory and space”.[2] On his 2014 album Wilderness of Mirrors[3] he outlines his approach to composition “For me it’s about a kind of struggle between almost nothing and almost everything. Sometimes one sound can be too much and other times 50 layers seems lacking in the depth you want to convey. I think at the heart of this question is dynamics, and I feel that’s very much what this album is about. It’s a slow reveal, I want it to be a seduction.” – Lawrence English, Wikipedia
