ADHELM - YASAM ROSE
Cat. no: GBCD102
Release Date: 27th November 2020
CD only release. A beautifully designed digipack CD packaging with an insert. Adhelm’s compositions investigate the spaces where insistent nature and bleak urbanity meet.
The result is a compelling admixture of resonant percussion, processed field recordings and spectral electronics. His adventurous compositional processes and experiments echo musique concr te, Cageian indeterminacy and the deep listening ethos of Pauline Oliveros.Adhelm is the moniker of London-based artist, composer and music producer, Beni Giles.
He has produced records for artists such as Lianne La Havas and Oscar Jerome and his compositions have been performed around the world. On completing his postgraduate studies in composition at the Royal Academy of Music, he began to explore production as a means to compose which has now become his primary outlet.
Fascinated by the natural world, much of his work is about nature, and its struggle with man. He can often be found in the outdoors collecting field recordings for use in his music.
This album comprises two pieces inspired by T. S. Eliot’s The Dry Salvages.
