Aquamarine is the debut album by Souns, an ambient project by the well recognized Vancouver-based producer and dj Michael Red. With Souns, Red explores themes that are reflective of the natural world, the unseen world, outer space, and transcendence. Performances are largely intuitive and improvised, sometimes guided. The audio is an immersive world of deep sonic output, lucid introspection, and seemingly endless layers of sound. Typically there are no "drums" in Souns material, though there might be a detectable pulse. As heard on the first album track “Untouched," Aquamarine leaves an unmistakable mark on the listener, reverberating in the mind long after listening.
As Souns, Michael has released numerous EP's and singles, made notable solo performances (Ambient Ping, Vancouver Art Gallery, VNM Festival, Bass Coast Festival, PGNB Festival headliner, Signal & Noise Festival finale), and has collaborated with a varied list of performers on the live front including Loscil, DJ Olive, Rafael Anton Irisarri, Rachel Iwaasa, Mei Han, and others. Red himself, in addition to making more dancefloor oriented material under his own name, is head of the Low Indigo music label, one half of the experimental dub duo Chambers, curator for New Forms Festival, and has been covered by the likes of The Wire, XLR8R, Resident Advisor, and others.
