A couple of weeks ago i had a lovely time in the studio. No random thoughts and no distractions, just me and the music. Suddenly it was there, this drone, noise, ambient piece. It was probably simmering for a while…

I am really happy with the result and maybe this can be a series, we'll see.

Enjoy and thank you for listening!

REVIEW by Igloo Magazine

"The result of a “spontaneous studio session” in late 2019, the multi-talented Dutch composure continues to explore vast soundscapes, this time with emphasis on improvised drone and dark-ambient voids. The collective and emotive pathway of “Memories of the 14th” quite literally inhales and exhales with an organic quality that is both nostalgic and hypnagogic. Reminiscent of Deru’s luminous and cinematic ambient sculptures of 1979 (Friends Of Friends, 2014), Ard Bit creates similar dense miniatures that carefully unearths itself. The cinematic and serene landscape of the closing “A Seat In The Sun” features minimal electrical substructures, drifting voices, and a cascading soundtrack that is textural bliss."
