produces ambient, piano based, lower-case music. Quiet and intimate, it explores sounds from both acoustic and electronic sources, along with processed field recordings and gathered, ‘found’ sounds. His latest releases, ‘Triptych in Blue’, ’Evenfall’ and ‘Lichtzin’ continue these themes and chart meetings with musicians and collaborators across Europe including the legendary, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, experimental electronic and classical composer, Christopher Chaplin, Dutch ambient guitarist, Anne Chris Bakker and remix work and collaborations with Toby Marks (Banco de Gaia). Andrew’s music is not static though. It drifts. It constantly shifts as it charts new topographies, creating and following maps that are full of change. If you listen carefully you’ll often hear quiet, random glitches or shimmering dissonances which fall by happy accident, in exactly the right place.
