Since 2008, Talvihorros has been the work of Scotland based composer and producer Ben Chatwin. Through his distinctive approach to the guitar, he crafts dense and dark compositions that hint at the conflicting beauty/chaos of the cosmos. The intention to create daring music that was free from a traditional sense of structure and genre, culminated in the 2014 release 'Eaten Alive'. This album focuses on the darker recesses of life, where bold melodic ideas fight with harsh noise and glacial ambience to create something organic, evolving and physically arresting.
Epic in scope with cinematic qualities, Chatwin's music has been used across a wide variety of media, most notably in campaigns for Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Volkswagen, Tate Modern and Wallpaper Magazine. Talvihorros, often as a duo incorporating live drums, has performed across the globe with the likes of William Basinski, Hauschka, Tim Hecker, Oneohtrix Point Never and Loscil.
