A Brooklyn based composer with music in over sixty episodes of television, David Buchs produces contemporary ambient music for the meditative listener.
Using sparse instrumentation, slow tempos, and long sustained notes, David creates a musical atmosphere that is both peaceful and consoling. Each track is composed of recordings and samples from bowed viola, piano, electric guitar, and voice that are transformed through digital and analog processes into layers of organic and synthetic ambient sound. The result has been said to sound something like a cross between Stars Of The Lid, Tangerine Dream, and Steven Roach. His meditative sound has been featured in the directed meditations of Edward Vilga’s Daily Ohm course “A Year To Get Rich With Purpose”, which has been downloaded over 20k times and the RAW Travel Show.
In his second EP "Dreams", due to be released September 28, David sets out to create an album void of rhythmic instrumentation, focusing solely on layers, pads, and melodies created during his first EP, “Visions”. He has just released a single from this EP, 'Dream 1', which is comprised of voice and viola drifting sleepily through a single repeated phrase. The absence of rhythm on this track allows the listener to drift into calm states of mind. It is the first of four tracks that will accompany listeners on a journey of contemplative rest.
