- Recollected Ambient Works 1: Bored of Excitement
- Artist: Kid606
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 6/9/2015
Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release from Kid606 AKA Miguel de Pedro. While de Pedro is no stranger to ambient music, Bored of Excitement is his first release to owe a significant debt to the Berlin School. The album consists of seven truly pastoral, piano-based compositions shrugging off any trace of his glitch signature. "After what would be my last Post-Berghain 9:00 A.M. psychotic break with reality, I knew I needed a change but decided that checking myself into a Berlin psych ward when I still only speak English was probably not the best idea. Reading about how Brian Eno was inspired to create the first ambient album Discreet Music while healing from an automobile accident, I observed my own bedridden state and my heart was set on doing something similar. I was going to stay home, get sane and make music without beats, samples, glitches or pretty much anything but piano. Making it didn't heal me, but actually completing this album so I can share it with the world has made me feel a lot less 'incomplete'." -Miguel de Pedro.
