David Kolhne is an anonymous experimental artist that has been active under other guises since the turn of the millennium. We are told that the artist behind this mysterious project is inspired by releases from labels such as 12k and Kranky; his sound straddles the lines between modern Ambient composition incorporating electro acoustic methods. The David Kolhne project started life in 2016 and has seen the occasional self-released work emerge from his Bandcamp page.
It is suggested that David’s location is Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) however as with many anonymous artists, this may in fact be a smokescreen. Not much can be gleaned from the artist’s profile image either, as a ghostly figure only adds to the disguise.

Typically, Kolhne’s work is structured from soft and hard synth recordings along with recordings of his custom-built instruments, transformed into carefully assembled environments of micro sound. ‘Granular Canvas’ is no different as it sets off on a journey through some 54 minutes of carefully formulated Ambient paintings. However, they are not so much pictures or paintings as they are colour washes, as deep strokes of blue, grey and green dominate the palette. Such tones evoke a sort of sea-spray shade and as you listen, you will be struck by a suggestion of pressure yet somehow, a sense of relaxation. The sounds have the power to both immerse and sooth as you take your own thoughts and ideas to them each listen, day or night, rain or shine.
Kolhne works completely free from concept however, particularly within Granular Canvas as he strips away all narrative in favour of allowing the sounds, noises and tones a voice in which to tell a story. A blank canvas, if you will.
