Profile: Dwight Ashley
Dwight Ashley Dwight Ashley finds refuge in a surreal world of sound. His frostbound expressionism is smooth, concentrating more on texture, tone and atmosphere than with narrative. His recorded work is dark, nuanced and separate artistic visions - yet, once connected by the listener, form something real in and of itself. Having collaborated with Tim Story, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Dieter Moebius and K Leimer, Ashley's musical center remains with his unusual perception and abundant creative power. His compositions are realized through variations in timbre and tone - the most basic concept in Electronic Music. Songs are found in the making, with new possibilities to be discovered along the way. His work penetrates, then devours. It is a way of thinking in sound - putting into sound a vastness that only the imagination can contain.
