restricting himself to a small selection of analogue equipment ‘odyssey’ is a reflection of ryan lee west’s quest to create atmosphere & space from minimal arrangements.
‘odyssey’ & ‘voyager’ are both incredibly stripped down & have a great sense of space throughout them, utilising short recordings, such as ice cracking, mechanical clicks, clicks from synth errors, sounds of debris, guitar plucks etc., which interact with the simple arrangements & create little hints of rhythm. 'philip' mixes beautiful, swelling synths with frantically paced clockwork rhythms while erased tapes luminary peter broderick appears on closing track 'soul'.
