Savaran is Mark Walters from Wales in the UK. After developing an early interest in electronic music in the 1980’s he moved away from the music scene to develop a career as an Archaeologist. In 2008 he returned to music and records from his home on the Welsh border near Shrewsbury.

The debut album Strange Landscape is a mix of his ambient, electro-acoustic, experimental, soundscaping and electronic music. The music is created on a variety of software and hardware synthesisers and also utilises environmental field recorded material which has been converted into electronic sounds. Many of the ambient tracks have a rich, deep and haunting quality which paint pictures in sound of mysterious landscapes and unexplored horizons. In contrast with these more placid soundscapes there are a number of more rhythmic and beat driven tracks which span a range of styles from pure experimental to IDM and ethnotronic.

The music is inspired by the random daily events and occurences that life throws at you, landscapes, nature, environment, atmosphere, astronomy, past cultures and the indefinable need to make music.
