knightd68 This is another field-recording masterclass in outdoor ambience & environmental feeling. Andrew Heath's work is always a pleasure - this one is no exception. Elements of drone, birdsong, sunshine and grey. Superb. Favorite track: Tree Cathedrals.

Jim Tetlow Both the music's aesthetic and the cover artwork hint at Eno's 'On Land' being at least a possibility among its touchstones. Andrew's work carries a just-so balance of details and the space between them; gentle enough to be becalming, even tranquillizing, but without having had all possible edges burnished off. Ambient music which keeps the mind alive when the attention it deserves is given.

INNESTI An amazing collection of field recordings, found sounds, and drifting melodies. Andrew has a signature sound that is unlike anyone else's. Looking forward to the next in this series.

Ian Yates One day young Andrew was walking in the woods and he suddenly was rapt by the sonorous lilting of a blackbird... he stood still and for moments was unaware of time. Perhaps then he became aware of the dual vibrations of space and time, perhaps he crossed a confluence of Ley-lines, perhaps amid a fairy circle he was transported on an unforgettable journey beyond the fields we know? We may never truly know, though through these precious recordings we too may listen, and wonder...

Roland Pyle I am relistening to this at the end of January 2021: a month into the UK's third lockdown. These beautiful studies are precious glimpses, reminders and reverberations of countryside surroundings, fields, woods and hills. They offer a promise of the walks, rambles and explorations that lie ahead.

about

Landscape is a huge influence on my practice. Not just the countryside or city around me but places that I have visited and even those in distant memories. With that in mind, I will be releasing a series of EPs that focus on what I draw from the environment around me. This is the first in that series and here, I explore a number of themes dear to me.

Field Boundaries details my fascination with the actual physical transitions between not only fields but also woodland or moorland etc. The way, light falls differently, birdsong changes and even the soundscape shifts between these contained areas. Tree Cathedrals is a reference to my love of Beech Trees and how they soar above us, pushing up to the heavens and meeting overhead creating nature’s own Cathedrals. Chalk, Flint and Willow Banks is a reference to my childhood and happy memories. I was always found in the ‘flint bedded’ rivers set deep in the chalk valleys that I grew up in.

about

Andrew Heath Stroud, UK

Ambient, piano based, lower-case music. Quiet and intimate - it explores sounds from both acoustic and electronic sources, along with processed field recordings and gathered, ‘found’ sounds. This music is not static though. It drifts. It constantly shifts and creates new maps that are full of change but listen carefully and you’ll also hear quiet, random glitches or shimmering dissonances. ... more
