Marvin Ayres


Combining elements of contemporary ambient and electronica with the influence of 20th-century composers such as Pärt and Górecki, composer and performer Marvin Ayres has crafted in 'Circadian Rhythms' another work of swooning intensity.

The belated 'twin' to 2014's 'Ultradian Rhythms', a musical exploration of the neuro-scientific qualities of the titular rhythms and their natural cyclic behaviour, this latest album showcases a variety of music textures, playing techniques and recording set-ups within an architecture of over-dubbed sound layers.

With every instrument and part played by the artist, it forges modern classical music evoking extraordinary emotions within a corresponding stillness. This latest release from acclaimed British composer of minimalist albums incorporates spatial soundscapes and psycho-acoustics in 5.1 and 3D Surround recordings.

"… among the top avant garde neoclassical composers of the early 21st century."

"...Mark Rothko for the ears.”
- The Wire

" some of Eno's best work, the atmospheres Ayres creates can comfortably blend into the sonic backdrop … compelling pieces of music that can dominate and transport." - All About Jazz
