about

Ed Hamilton is a talented experimental artist based in London. Sketches for Skomer is a personal account of a specific place in Pembrokeshire where Hamilton has spent much time over the course of his life. An exploration of faded memories; childhood, family, friendships and relationships (both found and lost), all bound by this unique bay on the west Pembrokeshire coastline.

Hamilton's considered approach to sound design creates a intimate persona, enveloping the listener in loops of minimal electronic tones, and gentle ambient backdrops carefully aligned into melodic phrases. Each memory-piece which makes up Sketches for Skomer delivers a series of rich auditory pictures; either of a feeling, place or person, lit by Hamilton's unique instrumental tone and compositional assemblage.

Whilst this release is based on personal experiences and is tinged with a certain nostalgia and melancholy, its exploration of universal themes leaves a pervading feeling of brightness and hope.
