Fade Into Light

An epic ambient drone to round of 2017.

One continuous drone focusing on one note and its usually hidden harmonics.

This album uses four sources: the usual ebowed guitar drone plus three synths all playing the same note, one is a deep resonating bass, one is a deeper pad and one is more ethereal. The combination created a minimal drone that slowly drifts.

While most Ghost Harmonics albums have tended to be around the 40 minute mark, I have enjoyed creating this longer drone. That probably means this won't be the last of these!

Reviews of Fade Into Light

Ghost Harmonics takes us on a wondrous journey through light and sound. This 2 hour soundscape covers practically the entire spectrum of sound, from layers of deep bass to wafts of soothing mid-range, to lofty pinnacles of celestial notes.

Immersive, intriguing and quite congenial, "Fade Into Light" is a worthy addition to your ambient drone collection.

On Top Of The World

One continuous drone that focuses on just one note and its normally hidden harmonics.

This drone has a lighter, airier feel to it.

For this recording, I dusted off my Skylark M series headless guitar which I hadn't used in quite some time. The feel of creating these drones on this guitar is quite different. It feels more melodic and the strings natural harmonics seem to be more prominent.

I will use this guitar again and see if this is the case next time.

Relax and enjoy this mesmerising drone.

Reviews of Listening To The Long Shadows

...this ambient drone echoes throughout your speakers, likely to fill any room it is played in. It is quiet. It is minimal. It falters only slightly, as if a calm day is interrupted by a cool breeze. The tone of it generally tends to stay at peace, one of meditation, and yet at the same time it can equally be just as eerie, though I'd expect nothing less from an artist with "ghost" in their name.
