2021 release from British modern-classical composer and violinist/cellist, Marvin Ayres, ‘The Lowered Veil’ serves as a ‘primer’ for his 20+ year output.
An introduction to his individual and unique soundscapes and psycho-acoustics, it samples a diversity of tracks from across Ayres’s catalogue of critically-acclaimed minimalist and ambient recordings.
During his 20+ year career, he has composed and recorded a diverse selection of minimalist albums, incorporating spatial soundscapes and psycho-acoustics and latterly 5.1 Surround Sound.
He has also produced a number of film and TV soundtracks.
Ayres’s music has been described as ‘transporting’, operating somewhere between the spiritual serenity of Gorecki and Part and the electronic adventures of Brian Eno and Aphex Twin.
His collaborations with film artists have been screened at London’s Tate Modern, the ICA, The National Portrait Gallery and other international galleries and film festivals and on UK’s Classic FM Radio.
