Ambient artists Ian Hawgood, Porya Hatami and David Newman continue their series of works based on the concept of creation, change, deletion, and loss.
Partial Deletion of Everything (Vol 2) follows up from the initial release of Vol 1 released on 12k in the month of November 2020.
Volume 2 brings a suite of tracks exploring the impermanent sound objects and their evolution across time and into silence. Each piece brings natural, electronic and orchestral sounds into focus and then dispersal. Each deletion references the interplay of existence between the physical reality and the subjective. Our bodies hold our memories and experience the impact of birth, change and loss.
As an artist collective we are pleased the music traverses the sad and the uplifting, the experimental and orthodox. It bends like the light through leaves or debris in the waxing ocean. It passes time and holds a mirror up to the experience of that time passing.
Our work to date as individual artists has graced many excellent labels including 12k, Home Normal, Hibernate, Audiobulb Records, Dragons Eye, 12 rec, Eilean Records to name but a few.
