Finding the soft light with Hollydrift


A new profile about sonic sculptor Hollydrift has just gone live at Igloo. It turned out a lot more fascinating than I had anticipated. Mathias has some insights about music and sound that are very close to my own (though his thoughts are actually translated into sonic work, while mine are just, well, “idle thoughts”). I love this quote:

“It’s safe to say what haunts me cannot be hidden in my work. I work in almost complete darkness, I’m in a dark, safe place and I just let things happen. It’s just the sounds and God and me. ”

Anyway, I think it’s a great read and there’s an EP and a few tracks readily available as MP3s (links from the article) that you should check out if all the blather piques your interest.
