dharmalogos At the intersection of Impressionism, Minimalism, and Ambient, Haigh's music scratches my Erik Satie itch. Relaxing but energetic music that's appropriate for reading or doing housework on a rainy day.

Anthony Childs Don't forget his appearances on the very first Lo Recordings release (1995) where his tracks are credited as Omni Trio but they are already moving away from the beats/DnB style and toward what we're hearing in his current releases. "Creatures..." and said releases are much more evolved in scope and vision but minimal and essential in composition. Favorite track: Winter Ships.

Mathieu M. This album seems to be rooted in memory. Delicately put together and intimate. Favorite track: I Remember Phaedra.

Kamani Robert Haigh’s Creatures of the Deep includes some excellent contemporary classicalish music, and is just generally beautiful. Definitely worth listening to.
Thank you for putting out this beautiful album. Favorite track: Portrait with Shadow.

Alegria At this point I can't remember how I found out about this LP, but I'm so grateful I have! Omni Trio was one of my entry points into drum & bass, and to hear Robert Haigh work his magic once again and in such an emotive way... blew me away. This is one of my go-to soundtracks for travelling or whenever I need to calm down. Oh and did I mention Rob is a wizard on the piano? Just listen, immerse yourself and buy the damn thing (thank me later). Beautiful front to back. Favorite track: Birds of Cadence.

about

A new album of piano driven ambient music from British composer Robert Haigh. Following in the path of his albums for the Japanese Siren label, Creatures of the Deep is an underground vantage of a meeting between the musical worlds of Harold Budd and Erik Satie. With a storied musical career that has ranged widely in style — from his industrial-avant-garde works on Nurse With Wound’s United Diaries label as SEMA to his legendary ambient drum and bass records as Omni Trio on Moving Shadow — Robert Haigh's work occupies a space between music and mystery. With Creatures of the Deep, Haigh is at the peak of his powers. Among noir, minimal, neo-classical landscapes are robust scatterings of bright reflection and a musical expression that is subtle and elusive yet uniquely Haigh’s in its voice and masterful execution. The closer we examine, the more is revealed, and the less is defined.
