Sublime English ambience - exquisite clusters of piano notes and guitar drones in warm electro-acoustic textures
The Alchemist's Muse builds on the success of Andrew's previous releases, lauded as 'environmental ambience of the highest order' by The Ambient Music Guide, albeit with a warmer palette of sounds. Andrew's collaborations in recent years with Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Toby Marks of Banco de Gaia and others have only added to his fascinating body of ambient work.
The Alchemist's Muse features two guest artists: Bill Howgego adds a sublime bass clarinet to the title track, and the poet Maria Stadnika re-voices her work on a completely new version of The Garden Reveals Itself, first recorded on Andrew's 2018 album Evenfall.
Andrew's seventh album on Disco Gecko,The Alchemist's Muse was recorded at his home in the Cotswolds, England earlier this year, just as a new silence was imposed upon us all. Following a 2019 busy with performances around the UK and Europe, Andrew feels that this album emerges with a sense of calm and tranquillity, creating a slowly evolving soundscape to balance the days.
Stephen Iliffe, Roedelius's biographer, has said of Andrew Heath's work that 'if you're one of the legion of fans hankering after the new Budd, Roedelius or Eno, quit waiting and immerse yourself in this music'.
If you haven't immersed yourself already, The Alchemist's Muse is definitely the album for you.
