The Quietist

My name is Phil Ward and I live near Liverpool in England.

I have listened to ambient music and electronic music since I was a child - I was first inspired by Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and The Art of Noise. As the ambient scene developed I listened to The Orb, Orbital, Future Sound of London and artists on the the Warp label. Most recently I have enjoyed Pete Namlook's FAX label and the long open soundscapes created by Tetsu Inoue. I also enjoy meditation music and natural sounds.

I am striving to create something beautiful. I usually improvise when I find an instrument or noise I like and gently build on top, layer by layer. I edit after I have listened to the track on headphones a few times. Generally my first take is the best - I like to feel the music and be taken on it's journey as I write. I often think the music writes itself :)
