Signals Under Test: Nascent

Nascent, or as the dictionary defines it: coming into existence; emerging. "Richard (Ricky) Graham a musician and music producer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK) has created a project that "encompasses everything from ambient to experimental to progressive rock". Graham has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and Asia promoting various music releases since 2006, recorded various sessions for BBC radio, and his productions have featured on regional and national UK radio. Ricky has been involved with a multitude of music festivals and performance events, sharing the stage with Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1) and Boxcutter (Planet Mu) in 2008, and electronica legend, Ulrich Schnauss in 2009". Ricky completed his Ph.D. in music in 2012". (, 2012).

The music was written and produced by Ricky Graham, with Axon and Nascent co- written and produced by Ricky Graham and Michael Andrews. Laura Graham provides vocals.

This is relaxing ambient, electronic guitar music which works perfect magic early in the morning for sunrise or late in the afternoon for sunset. The album is full of soft, elegant textures of guitar which sooth, calm, and relax you, taking your mind off of the busy work day ahead or behind. Perfect for relaxing with headphones on and nowhere to go. It has become an essential part of my morning routine. All of the tracks are full of interesting and wonderful variations on a theme, but Laura Graham's vocals on Keep Me certainly added a nice warm variation to the soundscape. Quiet Arcs, Kapelle, and Ebb and Flow, are also album highlights.
