Slow sounds for the soul

Simon Whetham is an acute listener, a field recorder, a thinker, a globetrotter, and a mobilizer. However, he is also a sonic cook. Wherever he goes, he picks up sounds and atmospheres as if they were exotic ingredients. And for "What Matters Is That It Matters", he made us a stew, slowly simmered until all the flavours come through.

Press quotes

A very interesting work, both conceptually and musically.
DARK ENTRIES, November 2015

What is in no doubt, though, is the vivid textures and rich sequences Whetham weaves with sound to sustain a rapt attention and fire the imagination.
THE QUIETUS, November 2015

It matters, and it matters a great deal.
AURAL AGGRAVATION, November 2015

Adepte d'un temps au ralenti où chaque seconde imprègne davantage que la précédente, Whetham nous offre le luxe infini de la plongée dans une nuit éternelle, où tout instant est précieux, telle une ancienne sagesse hors du bruit et de la fureur.
RIFRAF, November 2015

Opener 'Things Just Fall Where They Want To', covers a wide-ranging space of ambience that for the most part is uplifting and refreshing.
BLACK AUDIO, October 2015
