n5MD is proud to bring you ‘All That Was Lost’, The third album from cinematic ambient composer Stray Theories…
Australian born and current New Zealand resident Micah Templeton-Wolfe is the sole force behind Stray Theories, and this album finds him following-up 2014’s ‘We Never Left EP’ with his first new long-form Stray Theories material, not to mention, his first album to be pressed to vinyl.
Templeton-Wolfe’s time away has not been for naught. Composing for films, collaborations with like-minded artists and a plethora of remix projects, all while creating a sample pack for the Noiiz sample app under new project Ocean Lost. So it’s been a busy time for Templeton-Wolfe. While he has seemingly been focusing his efforts elsewhere, Templeton-Wolfe has been quietly composing for ‘All That Was Lost’, an album which is imbued in spades with Stray Theories’ signature mood-altering soundscapes.
Muted electronics have always played a part in the Stray Theories pallet, and some of Templeton-Wolfe’s extracurricular work might have something to do with those textures now being brought a bit more to the fore. In Templeton-Wolfe’s hand, these fit in perfectly within the personally subjective nature his music has always suggested. ‘All That Was Lost’ is a cinematic ambient gem brought into the world at a time when we need it most.
