about

"Faversham" is the (hopefully first) collaboration between Australian multi-instrumentalist Leighton Arnold, regularly based in South Korea, and Mauri Edo (a.k.a. subespai), originally released by chemical imbalance in January 2019.

Conceived mid-2017 after a recorded improvisation session, and after a long period of correspondence, the result is a collection of dark soundscapes, sprinkled with hope at times, mixing guitar passages, low-frequency drones, field recordings, bells and traditional Korean instruments. The tracks evoke a landscape of barren lands, abandoned factories, old forests and a thick fog that surrounds the everything.

"There is something almost soothing about Faversham. The drones and dark ambient soundscapes are hypnotic, and those sections of melody and conventional music can lull the listener into a sense of near-relaxation. Whilst it would be inaccurate to describe it as accessible or welcoming, Faversham is as close as dark ambient can be to either description."
--- Astral Noize

"Faversham is a dark ambient album in which the layers of each soundscape seem to have a clean purity about them. I never felt that there were too many elements vying for my attention, and the ones that were there, such as the crackling or chiming, sat nicely in the soundscape, easy to enjoy and absorb."
--- Casey Douglass

"Convinced that this recording is a time capsule floating through space I’m completely mesmerized by the way it tells a story through electronics and sound samples. […] They know when to keep the reverb steady and somber, and when to blend suspicious effects that lend to the goings-on."
--- Toneshift.net
