Ian Hawgood returns to Slowcraft with a longform album of extraordinary depth and effortless patience reflecting the texture of his life by the sea. After years residing in various urban sprawls Ian found himself irresistibly drawn to the high and low tides around his new home on the East Sussex coast. This work combines Nagra 4.2 and hydrophone low tide pool recordings with delicate synth and guitar loops, layered carefully on a set of Uher reel-to-reels, resulting in a remarkably assured sound world with a compellingly focused sense of security and ease. Peace Fragments is the opening album in a series of releases showcasing Hawgood’s substantial library of underwater hydrophone recordings.

Slowcraft digital series Lifelines is curated by label founder James Murray, presenting vital and consoling works from world class genre-defying artists, each carefully mastered by Ian Hawgood and individually paired with bespoke artwork by printmaker June Murray.

Lifelines. Hold tight.

Selected Press:

"Peaceful, patient, and very sincere. You should leave this on repeat throughout the day."
Mike Lazarev, Headphone Commute


"Das Album verwebt Gefühle von Sehnsucht, Melancholie und fragile Schönheit der Romantik zu einem malerischen Augenblick im Genre des Ambient."
André Schönauer, Gezeitenstrom


"Tre movimenti che formano il lavoro, orientati a una sottile malinconica, coronata appunto dai quaranta minuti di soffici risonanze del secondo, ponderoso “frammento”."
Raffaello Russo, Music Won't Save You
