coldstream - drown/lights
Coldstream is a London-based musician and sound artist Dan Mumford who creates his music using guitars, melodica, piano, old tape recordings, synths, percussion and field recordings. To date Dan has releases out on Under the Spire, Audio Gourmet, Aether Everywhere & Vikomt.
Drown/Lights ep contains two tracks both recorded from the same session which are based around treated guitar and bass guitar, but also incorporate some old synths, piano and organ. What makes these tracks interesting is the field recordings that are woven into them; these were recorded during a trip through the Cascade Mountains in the Pacific North West of America and are recordings of forests, wildlife and AM radio broadcasts from the area.
