Winter Music on general release

After it's release on Bandcamp https://markgriffiths.bandcamp.com/album/winter-music last February, the album has gone on release on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon etc.

You can still listen for free on my Youtube channel Mark Ellery Griffiths YouTube or my Bandcamp Bandcamp page

I wanted this to be a understated pastoral album. It is "small" in the way that many of us in northern climes make ourselves as small as possible as a retreat from the cold. The first track "Across the Snow" is a memory of a walk I took in the 1970s alone as a boy around a local farm. It had snowed quite heavily. There were footprints in the snow, birds and small mammals. I remember hearing the chack chack of fieldfares flying overhead in the peculiar acoustics of a frozen landscape. There are a number of atmospheric recordings on the album recorded on the same day the cover photo was taken. Other tracks reflect other winter moods and memories.

Introduction

Hello, thanks for looking me up. If you don't already know,  I'm a UK based synthesist who has been creating music since 1979. In addition to public album releases I have made music for production used by BBC, and the Discovery Channel and other broadcasters. 

Because of confusion on various platforms over the name of Mark Griffiths I added a family name to my own to become Mark Ellery Griffiths for my more pastoral releases and Mark Dalton Griffiths to release more experimental/ IDM type music.
