Marty Hicks

Beginning with the sound of a single chord reverberating through silence, Marty Hicks's “Olreilion” unfolds as a tapestry of delicate piano phrases, warm synths, blankets of soft noise, and organic soundscapes.
Recorded on gently humming tape, the album presents a slow journey through memory and the inner self, pausing often to revel in the scenery.
Somewhere within the confines of the electronic devices heard throughout the work there is a sense of physicality, lending visceral presence to an otherwise artificial sound.
