Epic soundtrack music remixed and repurposed

Automated Acoustics is an alias of leftfield music maker Lawrence Gill who is a composer for movie trailers (including landing some music/Sound Design in the trailers for Alien:Covenant, Antlers & Logan), and professional mastering engineer.

Lawrence makes music to soothe his soul – a sonic venting, if you like.

Automated Acoustics overall sound could be described as sounding a bit like if Tom Waits collaborated with Aphex Twin, before being remixed by Hans Zimmer.

“Built From Memories” is his first release in 10 years.

It’s an exotic brew, featuring huge found-sounds colliding with a beautiful live micro-orchestra of real cello, violin and double-bass, alongside esoteric live instruments such as the Snake Flute, Auto-Harp and Suling.

You’ll hear recordings from an illegal Scrapyard Recording session (paid for with a case of beer to switch the security cameras off). Savage analogue synths. Vocal tones from people on the edge. Sweeping orchestral melodies and epic drums. Each track is a mini soundtrack for an adventure in your head.

The title “Built From Memories” reflects that every track Automated Acoustics has ever made is somehow blended with a snapshot of life recorded from around the world – a memory. The process is its own reward and serves as a sort of musical diary to make sense of life and bring light to the dark.

“Avant-garde British project. Influences from early acoustic jazz and blues and electronica. A sort of Dadaist one-man-band. A REAL discovery to my ears!”
(Intuitive Music Magazine)

"A weird & wonderful album…
(Clash Magazine)

“It’s music to listen to, to dedicate some time to. It stands up to line by line attention at a musical level…I like it 8/10”
