Album Notes
Avaelin is the work of one man who just wanted to make something he would like to listen to. Much of his music is inspired by artists like Jon Jenkins, David Helpling, Apparat, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Jesper Kyd, Erik Satie, and many more. There are no gimmicks here. While originally a personal expression of his experiences, somewhere along the way he thought that perhaps sharing these songs would be worthwhile.

Avaelin came to ambient and electronic music after discovering a variety of ambient artists during difficult times via several podcasts. The music helped him through a number of things and one night, on a whim, he decided to compose a song in the same style. It was rough, uncultured, and poorly mixed. He liked it though. Soon others followed. Somehow this became a normal activity and even a passion. So here we are now.

Typically a session with Avaelin involves juggling keyboards, laptops, and some form of libation. He hammers on the keys until he captures the sound he wants and then iterates from there, layering drums, pianos, harps, and various pads. It isn't very technical, it is usually a bit sloppy, but it is sincere. Creating swells of sound that sweep you away into another world is the goal.

From a Distance revisits old sounds as well as a few new ones. It sounds familiar and yet refreshing. Welcome to a world of cold white light and falling flower petals.
