ackroyd composes delicate, intricate and beautifully atmospheric music by manipulating and multi-tracking sounds of piano and violin.

the 7 tracks are a combination of piano melodies and chords - played both conventionally or created inside the piano using fingers, e-bows & plectrums. field recordings of birds from the outer hebrides, and rain recorded whilst driving in scotland, add to the narrative content of the music, giving it a strong emotional resonance. it makes for an unconventional, innovative but hugely inviting sound world, which moves the listener with profound ease. “There is a joy and delicacy which permeate this release, one which commands not only initial attention, but which lingers and ferments long after its final chord… joyfully melancholic and fragile, yet with a strength that lifts it far beyond the watery inconsequentiality which can damage such light compositions…a wonderful record” – louder than war
