Originally recorded 1997-98 Cramond, Edinburgh with assistance from Richard Canaday.
Transferred to digital 2006, Re-assembled Feb-Mar 2010.
The music on this release was already recorded in 1997-98 in Cramond, Edinburgh, then transferred to a digital format in 2006 and re-assembled earlier this year. David Wells is one of the drone guys from the UK, just like say Paul Bradley, Monos, Ora, Colin Potter or Jonathan Coleclough (and no doubt others I can't think of right now). In both versions of this piece, called 'Resolutions A' and 'Resolutions B' (so two versions of the same piece, right?), it seems like he's playing an organ like sound on a keyboard. A kind of digital church organ sound, but with some delay behind it to cloud the sound a bit, but which adds a nice endless sustain to the music. The whole thing is highly minimal, and has a beautiful ringing tone to it. Excellent late night dream music - before or after sleep. Classic ambient drone stuff. Simple and effective.
