New album Block Boundaries will be released on CD, Vinyl and Digital by Village Green (distribution PIAS) on November 3rd 2014…
The album demonstrates a sonic and thematic shift towards a sound which draws as much from the urban environment and electronic music as to the more familiar electro-acoustic minimalist themes.
The full press release can be found here and you can listen to a full length track from the album here:
Artifacts 1-4 is the first in a new series of EPs from Ryan Teague focusing on source material derived entirely from analogue, vintage and found sources. Echoes of strings, found recordings and vintage synths are woven together to produce unified and organic soundscapes which also hark back to some of Ryans more ambient earlier works. It’s out now on King Tree (distribution: Morr Music) and comes ahead of a new full length album due in spring 2014. You can buy the EP from all the usual places including Boomkat, iTunes and Amazon.

Last year I decided to make a few Text Tones for iOS, and it seemed like a good time to upload them for people to make use of. You can download mp3s directly from the Soundcloud playlist.
Please Note: These will need importing correctly for use on the iPhone and will also work with any other mp3 compatible smartphone.
I’ve decided to make recordings of my progress on the Javanese Gendèr and upload them. I’ll be producing these and adding to the collection as and when I have time. First up is a traditional Javanese welcoming piece.
A few updates added to the Film & TV section including a nice little David Attenborough clip, a snippet from the BBC David Hockney special, a spot for fashion label Bottega Veneta and a ‘behind the scenes’ of the video for Cascades. Speaking of the video for Cascades, it’s also featured in a film by Vice magazine about the making of Jon Hopkins new Immunity videos here (also made by Craig Ward and Linden Gledhill).
My studies of Gamelan music in Java, Indonesia have finally come to an end after a 9 month period. You can find out more in my now completed sister blog ‘Notes From the Jasmine Isle‘, where you will find audio, video and photographs documenting the experience.
