An introduction, to friends old and new, to the music of The Ambient Visitor, a collection of peaceful generative ambient music.
This compilation includes a taste of each album self-released under this project.
In August 2011, I set about experimenting making generative ambient music, the seed for which is this album - thelovelymoon.bandcamp.com/album/music-for-dreams - by my project The Lovely Moon. I wanted to create minimal, peaceful and beautiful music that was truly ambient: it can be background music or something you intently listen to.
The music is created generatively. Each note plays on a separate loop, each of a different length, so these pieces could, in theory, continue for a very, very long time.
In 2013, I lost interest in this project. I couldn't see what else I could do with this music. I had explored space quite enough.
But then in 2016, with new found confidence and creativity, I came back down to Earth (mostly) and the project was reborn and this time each album had an actual title and everything.
These albums are a joy to create. Thank you to everyone who has supported this project over the years and for your kind words.
There is much more to come.
Released 5 July 2018.
All music written, performed and produced by Brin Coleman at MCos, Manchester from August 2011 to May 2018.
