News and New Releases

Lakewaves - Lakewaves Vol.2

The second collaboration album from Devin Powers (SineRider) and Graham Marlowe, both of whom will be familiar to many of you from their previous releases on BFW and beyond.

This album acts as a second half to its counterpart, however it builds and expands upon its own musical ideas.

Lakewaves Vol. 2 is a fusion of scratchy tape loops, guitars and smooth synthesizers set to jazzy, downtempo rhythms.

Release date: 30 August 2014

Bing Satellites - Twilight Sessions volume 13

The thirteenth volume of Twilight Sessions by BFW founder Bing Satellites.
Available on double CD and download

This album is a selection of live, improvised recordings.

Each piece starts as a blank canvas.
I play a few notes into a long, slowly decaying loop (or loops) and see where the music takes me.
This is especially true in this album. I started only one song (Outside) with a particular key or scale in mind (E phrygian dominant, if you really want to know), and even then, the key changed to something slightly different (A harmonic minor - same notes but with the root note being A and not E) as the song progressed.

This is a very inspiring and liberating way to create music - I can express myself in ways I never could with words or traditionally written pieces of music.
I hope you enjoy it too.

The cover features a large emerald moth with landed in my bathroom one warm evening.
They are quite common, although they don't usually stand out so much from their surroundings.

Bing Satellites - More

A massive album of drifting ambient music available on 4 CD package and download.

More is an album of music inspired by Manchester, my home town.
The city is hectic and noisy and full of every kind of person from around the world. And I live very close to the centre. While it is constantly busy here, I can escape into my light and airy little studio.

This album is a product of this great city and that is reflected in the sound - it is drifting and ambient but also gritty and pretty loud in places.

There is a reinterpretation of my song Where I Stand (from Nothing For Miles) plus a poem from Robert Matejko aka Robby Baby Dark Poet of Amour (recorded by Karl Hamilton) inspired by my music and a vivid dream Robby once had about The Sun.

Black Sign on Coloured Background 2

Four artists remixing each other once again, resulting in sixteen new electronic music creations.

The creativity of each individual artist was used to produce an original composition, which was then shared with the others. Each artist remixed the three tracks from the others, so the result consist of four original tracks and twelve remixes.

The graphics for each track represents both the artist and the remixer - the upper left letter represents the original artist and the lower right letter represents the remixer.
