Ishmael Cormack is a Somerset-based artist. He recently released his debut album titled Ammil which is out now via Krysalisound. According to the press release, he started as a series of improvised sketches experimenting on the use of polyrhythms. Deconstructed and recaptured within a 13th-century church.
The sketches focused on the use of a modest selection of instruments, electronics and found sounds. The catalyst of the project was a journey into the paradoxical nature of the natural world. Natures complex systems give rise to our perception of simplicity and beauty. Ammil attempts to mimic this understanding by creating complex rhythm that give birth to subtle melody.
