“’Undercurrent’ is a drifting soundscape, that meanders and swirls, like the currents and tides of the sea, by which it is inspired.”
‘Undercurrent’ is one of 3 beatless, meditative and pure ambient tracks which will form the upcoming Molten EP – release scheduled for early next year. It is peaceful and lo-fi, minimal and pensive.
Having released music in digital and physical form on several labels since 2011 under a different alias, Qaett is a return to basics. Under this guise Qaett creates ambient music in its purest form, neo-classical piano music with strong lo-fi influences and dreamy, melancholy beats.
Qeatt’s influences are broad, as he loves a lot of very different music and his preferred artists change over time as well. Some constants in the more or less ambient realm are Boards of Canada, Rafael Anton Irisarri, Arovane, Alessandro Cortini, Seefeel, Jon Hopkins, Nils Frahm and Ólafur Arnalds.
“The kind of ambient music I like draws the listener into sonic environments to explore rather than traditional songs. It offers momentary windows into these other worlds. It meanders, using sparse melodies and subtle changes to grab some attention, but at the same time stay in the background.”
