'MCCV' is classical guitarist Petar Petkov's debut album as ate. Exploring instrumental drone ambient through loop layering of minimalist and symbolic musical figures, ate is building warm and introvert soundscapes.
The four pieces in 'MCCV' are developing slowly and gently. Each note, chord or bowed tone is precisely picked and positioned in melodic or rhythmic patterns, soaked with melancholy. Through simplicity ate manages to build dronescapes as lively as contemporary chamber music.
