Casey van Wensem is a composer, musician, audio engineer, and writer living in Kelowna, B.C., Canada. His first EP, “After the Fire” was released in 2015, and earned him comparisons to contemporaries like Nils Frahm, HelkAa, and Lowercase Noises. He followed up this release in 2016 with another EP, “Still Life.” This album finds the composer alone at the piano, layering tracks on top of each other to create rich organic soundscapes.
In addition to recording his own music, van Wensem also composes custom pieces for clients in the business and creative sectors, works as a music editor and sound engineer for TV and film productions, and writes articles for a variety of print and online publications.
