Ebauche has been featured by John Kelly on RTE Radio 1’s “Mystery Train”, and has played live shows and festivals alongside notables such as Biosphere, Harald Grosskopf, Frog Pocket, Ambulance, Sunken Foal, Hrvatski, and Lakker.
His recent album, Adrift, was featured on Ambient Music Guide’s Best Ambient Albums of 2015, and since then has released his first full length vinyl along with a cassette-only release on German cassette label, Cosmic Winnetou.
“Ebauche” comes from a French word meaning “to rough hew, sketch”, and is also a term in horology (watch making), meaning “an incomplete watch movement consisting of plates, bridges, wheels, and barrels”. This name ties to Ebauche’s musical output, which frequently consists of ambient compositions which subconsciously play at variants of 60 bpm to calm and relax the listener.
Similarly “rough hew, sketch” hints at Ebauche’s darker electronic side: rough and mangled beats competing with sublime layers of noise, distortion, and subtle melodies.
