Biography

Inspired by Eastern philosophy, in particular the I Ching, Glasgow-based Iona Fortune's music is loosely fitting in with concepts imagined by Jon Hassell, and indeed she meshes traditional and with lustrous tones from a Synthi AKS that provides an incredible sub-bass throb. However, Fortune’s is an exercise in deep contemplation that isn’t afraid of baring it’s teeth. As opposed to so many Ambient albums riding revivalist waves right now, she seems aware of a basic truth that sound rarely works in one dimension. She aligns tradition and technology in a way that seems expansive and new, almost revolutionary; instead of creating soothing background sounds she makes use of grit and abrasion.
