Andrew Heath

» A Trace Of Phosphor

Label: Disco Gecko Recordings
Format: Digital
Genre: Ambient

Surprisingly alluring. That's how I felt when Andrew Heath dropped his new release, A Trace Of Phosphor, on Banco de Gaia's Disco Gecko record label. Already becoming a legend, in my book anyway, in the genre of "found sound", the producer has dropped another opus on us. This one is more melancholic in stature. Don't worry, I am still into my trance/techno sound. Smile

A Trace Of Phosphor is a delicate balancing act between lush piano soundscapes and found sounds; a practice where producers and composers go out into the wilds of the country and record organic sounds. Heath did this with Toby Marks for their Motion album. He's also done it on all his releases so far, all the way back to The Silent Cartographer.

As an album, its pretty much the same format as his previous releases. However, this time round, there's very few extended pieces. Most of his previous tracks have gone beyond 10 minutes or so and you won't find any piece here which does that. However, this album still retains charm, despite its melancholic feel. This is evident in the first track, "Instructions For Grief", which seems to be the norm these days, what with the corona-virus crisis the world is facing. The album is foreboding and that, for me at least, makes it a beautiful listen. I'd recommend this for background music or for meditation.
