With Ash Keating's magnificent paintings gracing our gallery walls, we've had atmospheric, ambient music on heavy rotation.
One can't help but make the comparison between Keating's colour palette and the ever-changing shades of the sky. The vast canvases, awash with oranges, pinks, and greys, call for subdued sounds that draw you in quietly. The large scale format encourages an immersion that's almost meditative. Tonal ambiguity and complex rhythmic transformations are a thematic thread woven through the playlist, pulling the viewer into the sweeping vistas of the paintings. The tracks are minimal enough to let the works breathe, acting as a medium ground between silence and the noise pollution from the street.
Once you're finished viewing Keating's abstracted landscapes, grab your headphones, take a walk at sunset, and allow yourself to be suspended in the canvas of nature.
