Home Diaries 023

Home Diaires 023: Adrian Lane - Indigo and Salt Peter

Home Diaries is an invitation to artists and musicians to create an album or EP to document their personal experience during the lockdown or social distancing conditions that are upon us, due to the coronavirus outbreak. The series reflects a range of sounds, styles and ideas, as each artist portrays their own reflections uniquely. Each release is digital only for now, as we hope to raise what we can to help keep our label ticking over at this time. The releases feature a recurring polaroid image of a small lonely house, with a coloured filter chosen by the artist for each respective release. We interview each artist and this is included as a bonus PDF with the download. You can also check out the Home Diaries series on Spotify if you prefer, which will be available to stream in due course.

For this edition, we welcome Southend-on-Sea, UK's Adrian Lane, who has released much of his recent work on the Preserved Sound label. Some of you may also have noticed his EP Atlas Browsing for Hibernate's Two Point Six Challenge. Adrian is an art teacher and has moved his classes online which he runs from the home he shares with his wife and two children. This has cut out his commute to work and saved 10 hours a week as well as additional energy which he uses to spend his spare time painting or working on music.

Adrian's recent work has largely been focused around the piano but in his Home Diaries record, Adrian decided to focus on strings and combined his acoustic instruments such as violin and bowed guitar and psaltery with orchestral MIDI libraries for Kontakt. He wanted to tread the line between the real and the synthetic so that this would be difficult to discern for the listener. The result is a form of Neo Classical composition which feels both modern and traditional, weaving stories that reflect the restrictions of the pandemic, the positivity born from spending time creatively and with family and also, a series of dreams.
