Today, Somewherecold Records is proud to have the ambient brilliance of The Quietist on the label. The album Hidden was put together from a collection of albums along with 3 new tracks written especially for this release. The Quietist finds space in long form slow, minimal ambient ompositions. At the center of the compositions is the attempt to capture the artist’s feelings, but overall The Quietist aims to produce relaxing, thoughtful music for the listener. Each track develops over time so the most benefit comes from listening to the flow of the music as it unfolds. It’s quiet and requires time and attention. The Quietist‘s music is meant to help calm the spirit and move a person into quiet slumber.
The Quietist (Philip Ward) has been writing music since 1999 by writing on the Playstation 1 with upgraded Cubase SE and a selection of virtual synths. The future of Ward‘s work consists of exploring even longer slower pieces, using silence as well as learning how to play the Shakuhachi. Among Ward‘s influences are Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Brian Eno, and the ambient sounds of Moby. Ward lives in the UK.
The Quietist: Hidden is available for pre-order on CD and on all digital formats.
