The second ambient release from Dave Preston, "Soundtrack For Motion" is a meditation of motion and movement in all it''s forms, both physical or metaphysical.
As he did in his ambient debut "Be", Preston intricately weaves uncommon intensity and passion into the sonic landscape and manages to accomplish something rare: ambient music that is capable of a wide range of feelings. From the transcendent "Blind Lovers Hand In Hand", the near sacred rage of "The Blood In Your Veins, and the wailing of "A Giant Leap Of Faith" to the "Blade Runner" atmospherics of "Spinning Away From The Earth" (a collaboration with Mingo), "Soundtrack To Motion" shows signifigant growth and maturing of Preston as an ambient artist.
"Dave Preston''s textural guitar music ranges from melodic to brooding, dynamic to intimate, reminding me fondly at times of Lanterna. Thoughtful, never facile." - Robert Rich
"A thoughtful, well-constructed work that effectively straddles styles without seeming forced. I eagerly await more work from Dave Preston." -Hypnagogue
"Although Preston himself calls the music ambient, it defies easy categorization. Strange haunting tones emanate from his guitar and other sources...Ambient with an edge" - Phil Derby / Electroambient Space
Preston’s first ambient music release, "BE" gained national radio play through NPR and international radio syndication through Radio Despi (Spain) and Echoes (USA), "BE" debuted in September 2008 at 91 on the New Age Reporter Charts. The following month, after continued heavy rotation on an increasing amount of radio stations and syndicated shows, "BE" shot up the charts to 66.
In 2008, after Tennman/Interscope recording artist Matt Morris asked Preston to join his band, Morris and Preston began shaping "BE-JOY" (third track from "BE") from an ambient soundscape, into a melodic, pulse driven POP song. Co-produced by Justin Timberlake, "Just Before The Morning" (Matt Morris/"When Everything Breaks Open") carries charting promise and marks the beginning of a writing friendship.
