OCEAN FLOOR
Ocean Floor is the solo project of Aonghus Reidy (b.1985), an Irish composer of electronic and instrumental music for instruments such as synthesizer, harmonium and piano. Since his debut release 'Jupiter' in 2014, he has released several albums of slowly evolving harmonies and soundscapes, with elements of ambient, minimalist and experimental styles. Currently based in Bristol, UK.  
 
Relocating to Bristol in 2011, his music took a new direction after finding an antique harmonium in a local salvage shop. The creaking bellows gave rise to 'Jupiter', an album that melds 19th-century music technology with dense clouds of electronic sound and reverb. This instrument also features prominently on 2018's 'Redland', this time mixed with pared-down piano compositions and subtle electronic soundscapes. 
 
Other releases, such as 'Dream Of The Sleeping Stones' in 2018, have used the sounds of analogue audio equipment to create surreal soundscapes of dark reverberations mixed with clear harmonies that rise above fog-like drones. Simple melodies emerge out of the distance and fade into the depths again. After several releases exploring electronic soundworlds, he is returning to acoustic composition with a new album of piano music, due for release in 2019.
