Fulmination - extracts from ambient collaboration project

The two tracks on Fulmination represent my contribution to an upcoming collaboration project with two ambient artists: Fabio Keiner and Beyond the Below

Writing, recording and production occurred sporadically between December 2019 and May 2020, making use of significant upgrades in equipment and techniques since the recording of Foundations. These tracks were a lot of fun to work on and I learned a lot in the process.

We chose volcanos as an apt theme for the collaboration. They are interesting because they are incredibly dynamic structures: slumbering and effusing gentle smoke one moment, then deafening and explosive the next. We felt that this was the perfect analogy for a release which blends textured, synth-rich ambience with the contrast of weighty heavy metal.

The final collab is currently still to be released, so in the meantime you can check out my BWS tracks over at Bandcamp or on Spotify/Apple music etc
