    “David Williams is an experimental/ambient musician from Kansas City, USA who began composing under the moniker of ‘Sounding The Deep’ in 2007. ‘Sounding The Deep’ approachs the world of experimental/ambient music with rich guitar workings that aren’t necessairly anything new by way of their structuring or arrangements, however, I think that the musical outcomes of these workings lend themselves to a very unique sense of cinematic interpretation. For this project David Williams specifies that inspiration for the works on his latest release ‘Night’ were found in the plains and skies of the midwestern region of the United States. In retrospect of my experience with David’s work, I would venture to assert that the pieces on ‘Night’ characterize these influential factors quite well, as the subtle guitar interludes seem to adequately summon the innate sense of melancholy that defines the naked emptiness of the plains in the midwestern United States. Given this, the musical content of the works found on ‘Night’ provide dense droning backgrounds amidst slight melodic guitar infusions. The dynamic of these works moves predominantly from minimal to more involved via the use of a variety of rather intricate chord progressions that constitute the backbone of the pieces. All in all, I’ve found this music to be extremely enjoyable and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in guitar-based experimental ambient music.”
