Snakestyle Live is a record of live performances on the circuit spanning from April 2008 to March 2009, including an Edensounds fundraising happening at the Synergy Centre in South London, Waveform Festival in Swindon, and two Whirl-Y-Gig events in London Bridge.
During these performances Snakestyle unleashed on an unsuspecting audience his unique brand of music, stepping across many genres of ambient and electronic, chillout, and dub. Sounds emanated from arrays of strange looking machines with wires and blinking lights, all held together under one vision for the purpose of sharing a soothing sonic world with a large group of people.
Snakestyle World Radio
Snakestyle World Radio, three and a half years in the making, is the latest offering from Snakestyle (aka Matthew Leigh Embleton). It examines the changing relationship between digital and analogue.
With increasing speculation about analogue being replaced with digital, the way we tune in and out and the nature of our relationship with radio will change. Over the years how music is composed and produced has changed, but in replacing analogue with digital, has something been lost? It's become easier to tune into almost anything, anywhere in the world but with so much unfettered access do we take that for granted?
On Snakestyle World Radio, Snakestyle attempts to bridge the gap between different technologies to merge the best of both worlds together. With Snakestyle's brand of Ambient Electronic Music tuning its way around the world, we are taken on a journey paying homage to the forefathers and true pioneers of ambient inspiration, along the way catching up with radio correspondents telling us what music means to them.
In short, it’s ‘Mood Music’, in fact 'Music to Think to’, or even better 'Electronic Thinking Music'.
