Bing Satellites and Daniel Land - King Midas In Reverse BFW recordings netlabel

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.

The album features the stunning artwork of abstract painter Ade Hodges. You can find more of his artwork at
