Bing Satellites & Daniel Land - King Midas In Reverse
Release date: 23 September 2013
Total running time: 1:05:48
The new album of quiet, beautiful songs performed on piano and guitar by prolific ambient composer Bing Satellites and Engineers/Modern Painters main man Daniel Land.
Although both have worked together in the past (Bing has played on songs by Daniel's previous band Daniel Land & The Modern Painters, as well as part of the live version of Daniel's ambient project riverrun), this is the first full collaboration between the two.
The finale of a riverrun concert in Manchester included a grainy ambient guitar played over a treated piano track. The pair decided there should be more of this sort of thing.
