Drifting Through Space

Slow, gentle and majestic.
Drifting music to accompany our collective journey through space.

One continuous generative ambient drone.

From our viewpoint, in our little bubble of air around the Earth, we can feel like the totality of existence.
When we look up at the night sky, especially on a clear night, we can see that we are a very small part of something much bigger.

I'm an amateur astronomer and astrophotographer. Recently, I have started filming timelapses of the night sky, such as this film
Suddenly, you realise just how dynamic the night sky is, and remember, this stuff is happening all around in the daytime too, we just can't see it!

Origin

In the high desert, a beautiful stretch of water is bathed in glorious sunlight.
The air is clear. The water is inviting.
We are far from the city landscape I am used to.
I like it here very much.

A slow, drifting but epic generative ambient drone.

Reviews of Origin

I can never ever get enough of this... beautifully described by Brin the mood which absolutely represents the music. Would be a huge treat when the day comes that there’s The Ambient Visitor material on CD or vinyl... heck, even cassettes of this éxcellent project I would not hesitate to get my hands on!

Under a Blanket of Fog

I really like fog. There is something magical and welcoming about it.
It happens so rarely around here but with the trees and streetlights, it always looks good.

This is a peaceful ambient soundscape with lots of space and room to breath.

The music is generative:
Each note repeats in its own loop. Each loop is a slightly different length so the music varies little but never quite repeats itself.

Winter Crossing

A relaxed and warm generative ambient drone inspired by winter in Idaho.

I spent Christmas 2017 in Boise, Idaho.


They get proper seasons there. Winter is cold and, as you can see, they get snow.
The clouds move slowly there (clouds above Manchester race across the sky in comparison).
The place is friendly, warm and more relaxed.
This album is inspired by all of that.

The music is generative, as with all other The Ambient Visitor albums.
This album is based in the mysterious locrian mode (a personal favourite of mine) although, with the way this music is created, I could claim it was in any of several modes. It just is, OK?!

About The Ambient Visitor

The Ambient Visitor

Deep and mysterious longform ambient music.

The music is generative:
Each note plays in a loop. The length of each loop is slightly different so while the music may vary slightly, it never quite repeats itself.

I also make music under the name Bing Satellites, The Lovely Moon, Ghost Harmonics and Blocker.
