Tell us something about the track Oliver’s Nocturne!
Oliver’s Nocturne was essentially a lullaby piece I wrote for my first born son. I composed this whilst my wife was pregnant with him and have been playing it regularly at home when I sit down to tinker. It took 5 years for me to get around to recording it and releasing it to the public but here we are!It was released on Friday the 16th of October.Since I now have a baby daughter, Charlotte’s Nocturne is also on the cards and due for release in mid November.
Thank you Matt for sharing this Nocturne with us!

Tell us something about the track Winter Walks!
Me & Lauge have collaborated a number of times on Ambient tracks. This release was actually a revisit of the original piano sketch composed by me when working out a progression for their Ambient collaborative piece Winter Walks. Wanting to celebrate World Piano Day on March 28, we revisited the sketch and came up with the piano solo piece presented here today. It was initially inspired from a Ski trip I went on after a long walk I took through the snow. It is soft and slightly melancholic and given that it is composed from a sketch intended for an Ambient track, very minimilistic.
Thank you Matt and Lauge for sending me this track!
