Lomea (pronounced ‘Low Maya’) is the new project from renowned composer and producer Rich Keyworth. Narratives is the result of two years’ worth of creative exploration; combining found sounds and field recordings to create texture and rhythm with his trademark multilayered acoustic guitars and analogue synths, all processed with extensive use of guitar pedals and FX. The end-product is a blend of richly evocative and hypnotic soundscapes, slickly arranged alongside intense and intricate electronic beats.
Lomea takes inspiration from artists as diverse as Amon Tobin, Steve Reich, Clark, Trentemøller, Opeth, The Field, Jon Hopkins, The Cinematic Orchestra and Sigur Rós. Think Filmscore, Post Rock and Intelligent Dance Music Electronica
