Summer 2020, and some strange kind of normal began to emerge after the coronavirus lockdowns of the spring, but for British artist Bruce Rimell, the noise and cacophony of returning life was an odd experience. It was also a time of big life decisions and new priorities, and he set to creating some sounds to test how far his new-found musical creativity could stretch.

‘Not All Who Wander Are Found’, an EP of three tracks and two short interludes, is the result of these experiments.

“This was a difficult project in a lot of ways. At the start, I was aiming for a kind of fast-paced minimalism, but I quickly discovered that the music – seemingly on its own! – had other ideas, and much of the project was spent chasing down the novel directions where the sounds had ‘decided’ to go. I ended up with something closer to a wall of sound, reflecting I guess the global summer cacophony I was feeling after the blissful silence of the springtime lockdown.”

The complex emotional landscapes in this EP reflect unexpected difficulties in a suddenly changing world. The hard-edged strangeness of ‘Edge of the Fucking Sky’ gives way to lilting, tribal textures in ‘Sing Lone Blood’, while ‘Afterecho’ returns the listener to the kind of familiar meditative qualities from ‘Sparkling Isolation’, albeit with a wilder tone.

“To be honest, I no longer really know what I am doing or where I am going in life. This year I decided to let go of the world and just wander in the mental and emotional wilderness, and it feels perfect. To not know, to not be clear, to not be found. That’s where this music is coming from, and that's where I am heading.”
