SW009: KousK- The Bend


The ninth release on Sensing Waves came out earlier this month to celebrate the winter solstice. The song is titled The Bend by KousK out of the BassBus collective in Calgary, AB. It is a light, playful, and sensitive piece perfect for the winter season. KousK has been playing classical piano since the age of five, and channeled her recent studies into this composition. As the song progresses, there is a steady build of decorative soundscapes and orchestration. The gentle and uplifting song rounds out the year as we look forward to 2015.

You can purchase the song below or on iTunes. Thank you for your support!

Been really enjoying all of Heroshe's releases this year and here is an infectious cinematic tune called Slang.

SW008: Shamik- Hemispheres (feat Shane Kellahan)


The eighth release on Sensing Waves comes from yours truly. Shane Kellahan is a mate of mine from Australia and he played sitar on the tune. We met in Australia in 2009 and performed together at Peats Ridge Festival in Glenworth Valley. We always wanted to collaborate together, and when I started producing I decided to record him. In 2012 (the last time I was in Sydney), I got him to put down a couple long takes and started working on a new beat. After a long time of learning more and giving the song space..I ended up stripping it back, changing the BPM, and ultimately fully revamping it this year. It ended up being a trippy + sub heavy beat with Shane's sitar setting the mood. The song is inspired by the long journey between our cities.
