Ambient Leeds

8th November 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Ben McElroy
Ben is an ambient/folk musician originally from The Wirral but now residing in Nottingham. He combines acoustic instruments (guitar, viola, clarinet, whistles and vocals) with a laptop to create folk inspired soundscapes.
His last album ‘How I Learnt To Disengage From The Pack’ received folk album of the month in The Guardian in January this year, described by Jude Rogers as-
A shivering seabed of sound, haunted by barely there vocals and stitched together with lo-fi production – McElroy has made a beautiful early year listen
The album also received positive reviews from Folk Radio UK and A Closer Listen amongst others. Iggy Pop also played a track on his BBC 6 Music show last year.
Ben has been writing music since his teens, with just a basic grasp of guitar and recording, but over the years has honed his sound, bringing in more instruments and finding influence in artists including Nick Drake, Vashti Bunyan, Richard Skelton and Brian Eno.
JD Roberts
Master of the ambient pastoral, and another folk-inspired ambient sound artist, Roberts weaves intricate nature-infused electronic soundscapes of deep forests and lonely seashores, through which melancholic woodwinds wander wistfully. Calm, relaxing, yet darkly mysterious, Roberts’ blend of the electronic, the natural and the acoustic is sure to transport you to other worlds.
Lizard Milke
Ambient and experimental music that puts a focus on sound design, creative manipulation and general waveform mangling to make new noise and make noise new.
