ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Soundtrack To Breathing' is Gary Bamford's second album and marks a change of style from his debut 'jadj', which showcased his ability to compose and perform in a number of musical styles. This latest release dwells in an area where classical minimalism, electronica and new age converge. The opening 'Spirit' is an intricate composition for piano, string quartet and electronic drums. Heavily influenced by Ryuichi Sakamoto's work with Alva Noto, the piece slowly unravels into a charming Arvo Part-esque chorale before retreating to the spacious, fragmented environment in which it began. The remainder of the album comprises 'Four Wordless Meditations'. Elements of Reich, Glass and Adams can be detected in 'A Different Peace' and 'Sleep Well', while Sakamoto's influence can again be detected in 'Mountain With No Summit' and 'Endless Movie'. All five pieces make for intriguing listening but the meditations in particular also make for ideal accompaniments to periods of relaxation. Co-produced, mixed and mastered by Lighterthief's Stuart Rowe (Andy Partridge, Peter Blegvad, Monstrance, Jen Olive, Future Sound Of London), the album offers over seventy minutes of beautifully recorded, ambient, calming, original compositions that will, quite frankly, enhance your existence.
