Edward Abela’s latest single Ambient Echo does exactly what it says on the tin. Yet, beyond the creeping ambience of the track are also the perfect structures of melody which guide you through the immersive mix. The instrumental only beat carries weaves of subtle drops which gently crash with the lucid momentum of the single. There’s little need for lyrics in the neo-classical telling of Ambient Echo, unadulterated emotion pierces through the harmony which has been so deftly constructed by the tentative keying of the synth.
The London-based musician, composer, orchestrator, and all-round aural alchemist is by no means new to the production game with his vast amounts of experience in composing for TV and Indie films. It’s safe to say that through that experience he has matured and mastered his ability to create emotively-charged soundscapes.
