ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Erik Satie once created music in 1917...

‘...whose sound would simply create an atmosphere for an activity rather than be the specific focus of attention.’

which inspired musical concepts from that point, such as ‘concrete’ and ‘Muzak’ yet it was Brian Eno who created the term ‘Ambient’ in 1978 for his works which he described as...

‘...being able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular, it must be as ignorable as it is interesting. Ambient Music is intended to induce calm and a space to think.’

The aim with this collection of music was to create an hour of musical space that could be used for a variety of application, such as a soundtrack to moving through the world and observing it or to just add music to an environment but in all applications for relaxation.

The idea was to create lilting melodies in a ‘minimalist’ way like Satie did but to develop the process that Brian Eno used on his groundbreaking album ‘music for airports’ in a more physiological and mathematical way. Eno created tape loops of sections of recordings of varying lengths and looped them over to create a varying soundscape of musical ideas. I wanted to develop this idea.

The concept was to create a set of musical ideas that each lasted a fixed number of bars each a prime number in length and to then loop them together. This means that in theory these loops could last for hours and hours and the listener would never here the exact same combination of ideas repeated. By fixing the tempo (but no discernable rhythm) at a speed which the heartbeat is at rest provides the listener with a natural empathy to relax.

The Latin word ‘consensio’ translates as ‘harmony’ and ‘ortus’ means ‘garden’ which is the way this album developed. Like a gardener plants the seeds and waits to see what grows, I planted the ‘prime loops’ and listened to what harmonies and melodies grew from them. This was as rewarding for me to create as I hope it is for you to listen to.
