Olan Mill - Body Cycle 3

from by Tessellate Recordings



Olan Mill is the project of UK artist Alex Smalley, whose work holds a sublime measure between the realms of modern classical composition and ambient sound design.
An ensemble of musicians play woodwind, piano, pipe organ and violin to augment Smalley's guitar and field recordings - these are then processed beyond recognition to create moments of heart-rending intimacy and bursts of flowering orchestral sound.

Since 2010 the project has released four albums on Serein, Fac-ture and Preservation - tracks have been used in a number of films including the 2010 Martin Scorsese produced documentary 'Surviving Progress'. Smalley has taken his project to numerous countries throughout Europe and supported artists such as Stars Of The Lid, Mountains, Grouper, Hauschka and Daniel Higgs. Live performances are a totally immersive experience utilising large scale visuals
