Kevin Kendle is a musician and composer working in the field of haunting, atmospheric instrumental music.
He uses keyboards, synthesizers and samplers to create evocative soundscapes which are then layered with beautiful sounds of nature, such as birdsong, which Kevin records near his home in the Hertfordshire countryside.
His music is inspired by nature and landscapes and is very suitable for any situation where a calming atmosphere is desired, such as aromatherapy, therapeutic treatments or relaxation in the home. The careful programming and selection of sounds give the music an organic, timeless feel.
Born in 1966, Kevin has been playing music since the age of eight and has since produced music for theatres and production companies including BBC Television. His music has been used around the world in various broadcast applications and the Eventide Music series of albums have been featured on BBC Radio in the UK. Those interested in a more in-depth biography should read the interview with Serge Kozlovsky, in which Kevin tells of his childhood memories and musical influences, amongst other fascinating details.
Kevin has long been aware of the power of music in influencing moods and creating atmospheres and of its relaxing properties. In 1992, he began producing albums of his music to enable others to enjoy its magical sound. Kevin's distinctive musical style has evolved from a feeling that much of the so-called "New Age" Music around offers little to interest the listener, and comes across as bland and unadventurous. By contrast, he has produced this range of top-quality albums that can be enjoyed through active listening or as background music.
