I loved creating Fairy Dreams and collaborating with some wonderful musicians.

I find inspiration everywhere… https://davidarkenstone.com/new-album-release-by-ultrasonic/ Mon, 01 Jul 2019 22:12:12 +0000 https://davidarkenstone.com/?p=82 Wherever I go, whoever I meet, whatever sounds I hear. Forever expanding and challenging myself as a composer, I find my travels to be great sources of inspiration. I love exploring and often my discoveries and experiences become music. It’s fascinating experimenting with sound and the emotional responses that result.

On a recent trip to Iceland, I was struck by the vast expanses. There was something very exciting and stirring about being out in the elements, alone, with only sounds of nature – the wind, birds, waterfalls… And I think this has influenced my more recent minimalist approach.

Forever challenging himself, this composer/performer/multi-instrumentalist is exploring a startlingly new sonic landscape. Composed entirely at night by candlelight and in utter solitude, BENEATH A DARKENING SKY displays a new aspect of David’s multi-faceted musical persona as he embraces a shadowy, mysterious and gothic style of music.
