derek muro is a creator of music that embraces concepts of emotion, memory, and perception in his work. Beginning his career from an art space in Bushwick while working weekend shifts as a church organist on Long Island, he is now an award-winning composer for film and game as a partner at the YouTooCanWoo studio in Brooklyn, having a diverse career that has wound through the studios of Hans Zimmer, with performances at BAM and the Yale Institute for Music Theatre.

From the organic and moving opener ‘ramble 1’, to the deeply introspective ‘root’, the New Yorker’s breadth of talent and influences are on full display across the album. Vast yet particular atmospheres and moods drift in and out of focus across the six tracks, showcasing muro’s talent for crafting wholly engaging and cinematic soundscapes. ‘rill​ 1’ sees muro pair field recordings with hazy, washed-out guitars that float effortlessly into the gloomy depths of ‘rill 2.' On ‘rove’, the ferocious experimenter and principal vocalist at New York City’s notorious House Of Yes Daisy Press appears, providing an ethereal vocal performance amongst muro’s shimmering production.
