PITP is excited to announce an LP on the horizon titled, ‘Wind Colors’ by Gallery Six.
Six beautiful arrangements, saturated with field recordings and blissful ambience.
“The field recordings for this album were especially intense. Captured during the winter months, there were many days when the temperature was higher than average with strong winds. Initially dissapointed with too much wind noise, I discovered, and was quite surprised, with the results of these captured field recordings. The collection of field recordings became the foundation of these arrangements and consequently became the all encompassing title of these compositions, ‘Wind Colors’.”
Regarding the design, 扎克 states, “The album artwork & design aesthetics are not what you’d expect from an ambient album. It really came to fruition after multiple listens of these gorgeous arrangements. ‘Wind Colors’ is a testament and a soundtrack to a life once lived for me. It is a very nostalgic-inducing record. It inspired me to design closely to an old blank duplicate-ready VHS tape from the early 90’s. The music makes me think of old recorded tapes of family and friends enjoying themselves: smiling, laughing, and being carefree; a time once lived where it was light, optimistic and everyone had a sense of naivety about the world. It is direct reflection of Hidekazu’s arrangements on Wind Colors.”
All tracks were written, mixed, and mastered by Hidekazu Imashige. Limited to 200 units. The album is currently being manufactured and information concerning pre-order and release dates will be announced soon.

This will be limited to 200 units. Mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri. Information regarding pre-order and official release date will be announced soon.
Wayne Robert Thomas:
'Cantus In Memoriam Mark David Hollis' is a very personal piece that mourns the loss of a very talented human being whose presence will be deeply missed in this world. He's had such a profound influence on me as well as many others and now I feel that his music carries any even greater weight than before when listening to it. This one is for Mark.
'A Grey Morning, Later Lovely Sunshine' was what Alexandra Fyodorovna described the day of July 16, 1918. Unbeknownst to her and the rest of the Russian royal family they were to be brutally murdered late into the night. I felt that this line described perfectly the month of February for me, a month that was full of loss and grief, as it had several overcast days and then sunlight would appear only for something tragic to happen.
Composed & recorded by Wayne Robert Thomas at the The Winter Dacha in Fairland, Indiana, February 26-27th of 2019. Arranged for electric guitar.
It is often only in hindsight that we are able to fully conceive the spaces we have traversed, notably in those metamorphic shifts of the mind. In looking back, our vision widens and clarifies; the darkness—once so intrusive and internal—is recast. Held against the light, its burden lifts and takes a different shape. The melancholy remains but is buoyed by a new hopefulness, a landscape unfolding, a bright contentment with what is and has been.
Guitar, piano, tape, and electronics composed and performed by Isaac Helsen. Strings composed and performed by Jeffrey Niemeier. Arranged by Jeffrey Niemeier and Isaac Helsen. Recorded, arranged, and mixed at La Chambre de Rêve by Isaac Helsen in January and February of 2019.
