TOWER OF LIGHT

(08/10/2021)

“Electronic music that you never knew you needed until you hear it”

David Ireland (Magnetic Mag)

“Conclusive, fresh, excellent”

Frank Eckert (Groove Mag)

“An ambient fairy tale at its finest” 

Hanna Frömberg (Faze Mag)

“A score for a fantastical parallel universe” 

Tome To The Weather Machine

Tower of Light is the second instalment in the Ambient Girl journey. A collection of musical works centred on short stories also written by Ross Harper, along with commissioned artwork by Iva Troj. 

The intention is to create a liminal space where fans can truly immerse themselves. The story behind the Tower Of Light album is as follows…

”The Ambient Girl reaches a large lake, it is dark. There she meets the boatman, he is wearing a cloak with a large hood covering his face. The Ambient Girl knows she must cross the lake to continue her journey so she bravely asks the boatman for help. He rows her across the lake. As they reach the shore the Ambient Girl gets out of the boat and then she turns to the boatman and asks if he is going to come with her on her journey. He answers in deep tones, “Do you understand what you are asking?”, she replies, “Yes I understand”, and offers him her hand. With this offering the boatman removes his cloak to become a tower of light reaching into the highest heavens, the light is arcing in every direction, streaming every colour of the rainbow, enveloping all things, becoming all things, everything is filled with the light in every way imaginable.”

Ross Harper wrote the album across several locations around the British Isles: a remote farm house amid seven mountain peaks in North Wales, the “Teacher’s Room” of a retreat centre next to a thundering gorge in a wild Western Scotland and the finishing touches were completed in North London, while staying at his mum’s place, where he grew up.

AMBIENT GIRL is the new 
downtempo album by UK based music producer ROSS HARPER.

The inspiration behind AMBIENT GIRL comes from a series of poems and stories by ROSS HARPER. 
 
These stories and poems jumpstarted a collaboration with award winning artist IVA TROJ and resulted in the creation of the AMBIENT GIRL oil painting, which is based on the album's main narrative. The story behind this first Ambient Girl album is...

"I see machinery, I see a man of light holding a key of light, surrounded by the huge machinery, like giant cogs and pistons, he stands on a raised platform amid the machinery, the colours around are browns and shades of darkness, the browns are like beautiful shades of rust. 
 
Then I notice a slender female figure is kneeling down on one knee, her head bowed, she is wearing a dark cloak with the hood covering her face, then I see in her hands she is holding a small bouquet of flowers, her spirit is full of stillness.
 
Then the man of light anoints the kneeling one with the key of light and there is then an explosion of light"
