The belated ‘twin’ to 2014’s ‘Ultradian Rhythms’ (Wall of Waves WOW101), a musical exploration of the neuro-scientific qualities of the titular rhythms and their natural cyclic behaviour, this latest album showcases a variety of music textures, playing techniques and recording set ups within an architecture of over-dubbed sound layers. With every instrument and part played by the artist, it forges modern classical music evocating extraordinary emotions within a corresponding stillness.
“…Ayres uses stringed instruments and new sound recording technology to create luxuriant ambient music.” The Strad
“…among the top avant garde neoclassical composers of the early 21st century.” MWE3.com
“…Mark Rothko for the ears.” The Wire
“…like some of (Brian) Eno’s best work, the atmospheres Ayres creates can comfortably blend into the sonic backdrop…compelling pieces of music that can dominate and transport.” All About Jazz
