I have been sitting on a promo of Antonymes beautiful debut full-length record ‘The License to Interpret Dreams’ for a few weeks now.  I’ve been taking my time to digest what is a truly remarkable record and a triumph in cinematic soundscaping.  Recently issued by the excellent Hidden Shoal Recordings, ‘Endlessly’ has been chosen as the lead track to help promote this record.  Listen below and look out for my review soon

Antonymes is designer, photographer, conceptualist and musician Ian M. Hazeldine, making music from the wilds of North Wales, a very strange, fantastic, ultimately unreal place of mountains, streams, woods, villages and obscure wilderness. To quote North Welsh poet R. S. Thomas, “to live in Wales is to be conscious at dusk of the spilled blood that went into the making of the wild sky, dyeing the wild rivers in all their courses.” His music begins at the piano, where notes, space and intention combine over time, until a shape appears. This shape is taken into the computer, where it is twisted, gently, and given more detail, until it is fully formed. Composition takes form through patience, probing, occasional accidents, spontaneity and a form of focused daydreaming.
