Album: F51.01 (Release Date 02/10/17)
Styles: Electronica, Ambient, Experimental
Delivering up some very relaxing, ambient electronica, Ryan Summers' full length album titled "F51.01" is a tranquil, electronic, atmospheric experience. The album is titled F51.01 after the ICD-10 code (a coding system used in the medical profession) for insomnia. F51.01 is a digital-only release and will be available on Spotify and Apple Music Feb 10, 2017.
In his own words, “My interest in ambient music grew after struggling with insomnia for several years. It helped keep my brain occupied on the nights when I couldn’t sleep. Only certain ambient music worked, though. I wanted to see if I could make more of that music.” -Ryan Summers
Blending layers of instruments to create new combinations of unique sound, Summers brings his listeners on a mellow, yet intriguing, abstract journey.
We recommend the track "Clock Works". A complete story telling with sounds, this song is meditative, rejuvenating and mesmerizing. Summers gradually builds layers to create a journey within the subconscious mind. A great track to put you in a trance when you want to dive inwards. "Well Tuned" is another great track. Summers' repetitive, gentle, hypnotic beats are enjoyable, and functional, as they are great for putting on before bed, and aid in deep relaxation.
So if you're in the mood to kick back, relax and journey deep into the depths of your subconscious, you will definitely find harmony with Ryan Summer's "F51.01" album. Enjoy!
