'stream' - new ambient album out now!
In 2018, I tried to compose a piece of music every day and post it on my website harkmadley.com, restricting the work on each piece to 1 day. I called this process the stream.
This music was created with modular synths, cassette tape loops, analog synthesizers, and piano.
This album is a curation of my favorite pieces, ambient in nature and intended to be a collection of calm and reflective music for meditation, yoga, sleeping, cooking, walking, thinking... A reminder to be present.
Buy the album on cassette on bandcamp, or stream it on Spotify or Apple Music. Thanks for listening!

Hark Madley - Science (Sakura Variations)
I created these two variations of EP1's "Science" while traveling in Japan with the the sakura revealing more of their immaculate beauty with each day. These variations were made by manipulating and re-arranging the individual elements of "Science". Each one became a reflection of the city in which they were created.
