Toronto ambient composer Sun Rain has shared new piece ‘Fog Dance’.
The Canadian musician has a painterly touch to his work, blending abstract tropes with glacial aspects of melody. His compositions seem to exist on multiple levels, with their emotional pull set against a probing, adventurous sense of creativity.
His album ‘Sheets’ was a remarkable experience, a period of electronic lucidity. Following this, he’s now completed work on an incoming EP, titled ‘Cosmic Vibrations Vol. 3’.
Ahead of this, new piece ‘Fog Dance’ is online now, and it’s slow-moving pace carries a meditative quality. Matching cutting edge electronics to a passion for minimalism, ‘Fog Dance’ echoes the work of Steve Reich while adding daring new shades, hues, and textures.
“For this piece I wanted to create something with a repetitive element that seems to grow and morph with the sounds around it. Gently inspired by Steve Reich my aim was to balance dark and murky with light and bubbly. The addition of the sax from Joseph Shabason really helped bring the track to life.”
