We wrote different times about Olan Mill, the project of British musician and sound artist Alex Smalley. One year after Orient (Dauw), he’s back with a new album. Curves is out now via Shimmering Moods. His words about it: “This record was completed on either side of a trip to Myanmar at the end of 2016 – it captures a time of total change as I prepared to become a father and relocate to Germany.
Built upon field recordings from my home and various work environments I found myself reflecting on places I had spent hours of my life living, working and growing. Layers of processed guitar, synthesisers and voice were added to create a time-capsule of locations and experiences“.
