An atmospheric ambient album featuring 8 distinct tracks from Nick Webb…
The title track is based on recordings of the “Severnside Sirens”. These are warning sirens based along the coast from Avonmouth towards Clevedon in North Somerset. There are 12 siren stacks which would be used in the event of a chemical leak or fire on Avonmouth docks. The sirens are tested once a month and create a live “Steve Reich” style phase track. You hear the different sound sources coming in and out of phase as the sound travels from the various sirens.
As a sort of pantheist, or at least an artist who finds great stories hiding in the vast visual subtleties of nature – Subtle Trees is a classical music collage as much as it is an homage to classical music. It’s core is created through sounds gathered in the owl hours by sampling ancient instruments whose cores were derived from the trees of nature. These sounds were layered like lichen on an ancient pantheistic sculpture.
