Under the moniker of [Indistinct Chatter], filmmaker Myles O’Reilly (AKA Arbutus Yarns) has released his sophomore collection of ambient music works, Cabin Lights Off – listen below.

With melodic passages composed of organs and synths that drift in gusts of reverb and choirs that serve to add texture, Cabin Lights Off is by turns dramatic, haunting and whimsical.

The long-haul flight theme of Cabin Lights Off provides the experience of an immersive journey above the clouds, sure to transport and mesmerize the listener without the use of any visual aid.

O’Reilly said: “Inspired by long haul flights, I miss that feeling of tearing through the air, hundreds of miles an hour, thousands of feet above ground, snug behind a few panes of plexiglass, looking out at a sun setting above the clouds, dipping behind this giant space rock, made all the more present with a long and windy drone in my ears.

“It doesn’t really matter how I travel, there’s no better soundtrack than minimal ambient for staring out a window into the middle distance, when my mind turns its focus to the imagination and doesn’t want to be distracted.”
