My new ambient album Hegira is now available to download from this website. Following on from 2018’s Stateless it’s my fifth album of longform ambient space music, full of atmospheric soundscapes and textures. It’s also available on Bandcamp and should be on all other streaming services within a few days.
Some of my music was used recently at the Singapore Night Festival as part of a dome projection mapping installation. It looks amazing and would have been amazing to see in person – maybe next time!
Track: The Divine Realm from Cryosleep Dreams
