Kingbastard's News

Posted by Kingbastard - April 25th, 2013


New EP: Gwynt, Glaw, Myfyrio is released today! Available on Limited Edition Mini CD & Digital formats, exclusively at chrisweeksmusic.com

A twenty minute piece, consisting of three main movements. Inspired by a week of severe weather, which kept me holed-up in my small studio in the Welsh hills. 'Gwynt, Glaw, Myfyrio' (or 'Wind, Rain, Reflection') rounds off a trilogy of EPs, written and recorded during the first 3 months of 2013: [Formeg: | The Ebb & Flow | Gwynt, Glaw, Myfyrio]. Each EP takes influence, both literally & metaphorically, from separate, naturally occurring events: death, the tides, and the ever-changing Welsh weather. Exploring melancholic moods, textures & tones, they reflect my introspective state of mind over that period.

Follow the link to listen to my new EP 'The Ebb & Flow' Chris Weeks - The Ebb & Flow

The Ebb & Flow: An EP of guitar-only soundscapes. Featuring acoustic, electric, bass, classical, guitarlele, lap-steel & bowed guitar.

Staring out to sea. The Ebb & Flow of the tide. Waves of sorrow wash over you; a deep melancholy. Comfortable, a self-aware sadness. Its motives: wistful, romantic, hopeful, not without purpose; absorbing, fuelling creativity, a source of inspiration.

Available on Limited Edition Mini CD & Digital formats.

Listen to my forthcoming mini-album Chris Weeks - A Deconstructed Sun in full now.

================================================
'A Deconstructed Sun' is a sonic representation of the Sun's elemental composition; breaking it down into its constituent parts.

Mirroring this process by utilising fragments of melodic and tonal explorations created for his ambient opus 'A Haunting Sun'; Chris deconstructed select elements and rearranged them to form new, unique audio collages.

The resulting conceptual 'mini-album' is a progressive and cohesive amalgam of sonorous ambience, lo-fi sensibilities, descriptive drone, experimental electronica & glitch.

A wonderfully realised record in its own right, it also serves as the perfect accompaniment to his debut LP on Nibbana, 'A Haunting Sun'.

[Tigerbeat6 / Nibbana]
