With no definitive scene around him Gareth Foley took the idea to gather up every sound, thought and feeling and has travelled the world capturing audio from the changing environments he has visited. His album has seen him capture audio snapshots of the differing countries to render these into an album of complex and mesmerising audio compositions.
What came out was a fruitful journey that made its way through an incredible number of locations, people and genres with sounds ranging between industrial haunts to the alluring and curious.
Dismissing the tendency of acoustic ecologists to elevate sacralised natural soundscapes in a predicable manner, Foley manages to capture the power in sound that pulses and vibrates in unique an unexpected places. Translated through manipulation with these polyrhythmic patterns, visuals and songs Foley would like the audience to be able to evoke thought and emotion as he shares his take and experience of each location.
The natural stages for the recordings which also appear as the track names are as follows; Edinburgh, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Joshua Tree National Park. These locations are all places Foley has visited, with his microphone in his endeavour to capture natural sound over the cultural, a battle of sound vs. music.
Foley will be a The Dogstar on 30 April, 2014 and for all future tour dates and more information on the release go to musicbyfoley.bandcamp.com.
