In a studio that overlooks a valley where the air breathes a lone craftsman sets to work mapping his experience through experiment.
A collection of electronically manipulated found sound and customized instruments, Quiet Noise cultivates a tension between careful spacious textures and clumsy plucked ticks. The aim is to present the search for peace in our complex experience as a fractured beauty.
Composer and multi-instrumentalist Adam Wilkinson applies years spent as a sound engineer to a large and well ordered collection of things that make noise. His compositions feature on nature documentaries, short films and albums of MC’s who think different.
In March 2014 he was Bethan Elfyn’s BBC Introducing act of the week. Radio Wales’ Adam Walton calls his sound “evocative” and says he “would like to live inside Quiet Noise’s music.”
Album ‘Audible Life’ was released on Audiobulb in February 2015. Louder Than War described it as “an album that creeps inside the mind and lingers long after listening” while Brainstormimprov.com concluded “there is definitely a master at work.”
In April 2016 Audiobulb released second album ‘Music | Building | Music’ which was hailed as “a veritable feast of harmonies and melodies” by Essentially Pop while Buzz magazine says it “successfully realises a charming and emotive idea.”
