Ben Chatwin
Altered Signals

Sales of last year’s Staccato Signals and Drone Signals will have slowed a bit by now, so what better time to power up Ben Chatwin’s series once again? Here’s Altered Signals, or the Staccato Signals remix album. Steve Hauschildt remixes a few signals, From the Mouth of the Sun remix a few other signals. Even Konx-om-Pax remixes some signals. Many a signal be altered.

Drone Signals

Former Talvihorros chap Ben Chatwin has not been content with releasing one album this year. Instead he has gone back to his sound sources for 'Staccato Signals' and created an entirely new work. 'Drone Signals' as you might guess by the title is a more ambient stretched out work that will appeal to all your drone and neo classical greats like Ben Frost and Max Richter.

Staccato Signals

Talvihorros remains in hibernation while Ben Chatwin issues a third album under his own name for Village Green. This one began as an attempt to do a purely electronic analogue synth album, but that’s not really our Ben, is it? Acoustic instrumentation found its way into things sooner or later, and what you get is a record bubbling with analogue warmth and cinematic strings.

Heat & Entropy

Strings form the underlying core of this album: rubbed, bowed, strummed, prepared, and attached to a wide array of instruments from pianos to quasi-pianos to guitars to mandolins. Lovely strings! And some electronics too. Ben Chatwin has done a great job harnessing these many textures in service of the curious melodies of Heat & Entropy. It’s out on Ba Da Bing.

Ben Chatwin
The Sleeper Awakes

Recorded at his home in Scotland, The Sleeper Awakes by Ben Chatwin is inspired by the works of HG Wells and sees Chatwin, who has previously released music under the name Talvihorros, concentrate on ambient melody as he creates subtle tunes which beautifully meld together into a distinct structure rather than a textured ambient sound. Along with synths and other electronics, Chatwin also uses a 100 year old Dulcitone on the album. LP comes with download code.
