Solstice

The song of cicadas and frogs, the touch of summer breezes or the baleful gaze of a relentless sun… the days are at their longest, the nights at their shortest and the human psyche at its most wide-open point in the year.

Today is the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere, this high point of the warm season.

  • Summer Night is a re-issue of Bing’s first official release – a chilled ambient album – now remastered.

    It includes two live tracks (‘Messages’ and ‘Astronaut’) and an extended extract from the experimental piece ‘Music For Horns in G major’, in which each note plays in a loop. Each loop is of a slightly different length so when the sequence plays it never quite repeats itself.

    Bing Satellites is a prolific ambient shoegaze musician and producer from Manchester, UK and founder of BFW recordings.

    Bing has released many EPs and albums on BFW recordingsFree Floating Music and Treetrunk Records including collaborations with Daniel LandOnSpiderParkTange, as well as All The Lost Souls (a collaboration between himself, Getzel and piper_ben) and an ever-growing collection of live, improvised ambient music entitled Twilight Sessions.
