Product Description

SOFT CONFIDENCE is the brand new ambient/electronic album by Richard Pike ofPVT (Warp Records) and captures, with simplicity, an attempt to find the core of music-making and the spiritual freedom that comes with it.

It began as a series of minimalist vignettes for a large installation work in Tokyo by London’s United Visual Artists and is the first release on his own imprint Salmon Universe Records.

“As part of motorik rock band PVT, Richard Pike has long made music based around driving rhythms and the strictures of the guitar. On his new solo project Deep Learning he’s casting that all aside and making beautiful, measureless electronic music.” [The Line of Best Fit]

Over 2 decades Richard has wandered between computer worlds and live instrumentation, explored and blurred lines between experimentalism and melodic economy. His textural and melodic sensibilities exist here but in a pure, reductive form.

Made entirely in Fish Island, London in a month in 2017, it is inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, the goal was to create “simply, meditatively and without restriction – to create a feeling of contentment”.
