Thom Brennan - Imaginary Conquests (2019)
Inspired by landscapes and the natural world, Thom Brennans' music defines a unique and organic style of electronic sound-painting... a colorful and private world of harmonic soundscapes and rhythmic journeys. Ambient impressionism... soundtracks for the imagination often recorded during extended live studio improvisations. A shifting terrain of layered textures and thematic patterns creating an unfolding drama in sound, while remaining firmly anchored in the worlds of "ambient drone" and " ambient space".
...The 71-minute velvet, pastel-coloured outcome was born and inspired by original tape recordings from 1984-1985 that unfortunately contained too much degraded audio so newer material was recorded early 2019. Thus four long ambient-esque tracks (“Parts”) of TD-influenced sequencer-driven space music came about, all progressing slowly, fluidly and in a minimal fashion while spreading a warm, mellow, gentle swirling sound design while travelling toward distant horizons...Bandcamp | CDBaby | ReviewTracklist:
