Ian Hawgood + Stijn Hüwels
No Voices

No Voices by Ian Hawgood and Stijn Hüwels started life as a pile of old tape in Hawgood’s garage. As he tried to salvage what he could from it, it killed his reel-to-reel, gradually slowing before stopping forever. He found this to be a beautiful thing. The salvaged music, with the addition of Stijn Hüwels subtle meldoies, made for a truly beautiful ambient album.

Ian Hawgood + Phil Tomsett
Fragmented Boundaries

Fragmented Boundaries is not your usual Home Normal release. It does feature label owner Ian Hawgood along with his pal Phil Tomsett, but rather than the usual blissful ambience it is an album filled with random bursts of noise and melodic passages. It’s fragments of this and that pieced together. It perhaps reaches further than previous releases and its journey, whilst highly enjoyable, is a little more wild.

Ian Hawgood
Love Retained

Incredibly bare piano pieces, presented with thanks, love and admiration for those around him. Battling with depression for decades Ian Hawgood found a release, but also a trigger in composing, these unfinished and unmastered piano sketches serve up as a mirror to that fragility, and mark his departure from his own label (Home Normal) and possibly music itself.

Ian Hawgood
Impermanence

Sir Ian Hawgood (he's not actually been knighted but maybe he should be for services to electronic ambient music) is back to tell us all about decay. Using reel to reel tape recorders and other ephemera he has here embraced tape hiss and other side effects of the recording process to bring us nine slowly unfurling electronic pieces to aurally soundtrack what is also happening to our bodies.

Ian Hawgood + Danny Norbury
Faintly Recollected

Home Normal - restful music on an anything-but-restful release schedule. This time it’s HN boss Ian Hawgood himself exchanging notes with Danny Norbury (The Boats). The result is one gapless piece cued into seven untitled movements. Wistful layers of cello, serene and cinematic passage through ambient vignettes… you know the drill.

Ian Hawgood + Giulio Aldinucci
Consequence Shadows

More somnolent, slow-burning electroacoustic ambience courtesy of Ian “Home Normal” Hawgood and rippling fieldrec soundscapist Guilio Aldinucci. There are sometimes more layers to these arrangements than first meet the ear, as it seems great care has gone into ensuring all elements blend into undifferentiated calm as easily as possible. On duty for the last twenty minutes, Stijn Hüwels contributes a remix in exactly the same style.

Ian Hawgood + Wil Bolton
Transparencies

Eight years into their collaboration, Wil Bolton and Home Normal main-man Ian Hawgood have finished their first full-length album. Transparencies is a tender release full of intimate interplay of instruments and sounds: Bolton and Hawgood are perfectly suited to one another, sharing a subtle melodic approach. Released on Home Normal in a limited edition of 500 CDs.

Stefano Guzzetti, Christoph Berg, Danny Norbury, and Ian Hawgood
050316

The title 050316 indicates the date of the concert where these delicate and rich neoclassical compositions were recorded. The Home Normal label specialises in the sounds produced when orchestral music, drone and ambient meet, and these performances from Stefano Guzzetti, Christoph Berg, Danny Norbury, and Ian Hawgood represent that powerful and distinctive sound.
