Ten / Daniel Thomas
Ten (Dominic Deane) is a musician and artist who resides in the north of England in Leeds, UK and has making experiment and ambient music since 2009. Ten’s sound combines electronic keys, shoegaze noise and percussion with the acoustic sounds of glockenspiel and strings to create a beautiful cinematic sound-scape that moves from slow, eerie and melancholic to pulsating and optimistic. Ten have kindly supported, Tim Hecker, Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai, Esmerine and Lucky Dragons. He has released records on Murmur, Cathedral Transmissions, Twice Removed and Heath Death to name a few. He has also appeared in groups such as drone rock band Sunwolf, November Fires, and improvised band Trouble the Dark.

Utilising drones and synthesisers Daniel Thomas has done for Sheepscar what Parmos did for Middlesbrough, with lashings of noise and field recordings to boot. This minimal, fuzzy cosmic dirge is enough to satiate even the most ravenous of outré thrill seekers.
