A Break In Time

A 9 track ambient album (6m 45s) — released December 1st 2023 on Compost

The stunning debut ambient album from Fred Everything's new project All Is Well.

A Break In Time is an ambient album written during the lockdown as a sort of calming therapy / meditation exercise. The project quickly took form with a unique sonic identity and message inspired by this feeling isolation felt during that time. The album is about fragility, naivety, contemplating our vulnerability but also of our resilience and the feeling of alone/together.
This album might have taken less than a year to make, but it's a culmination of influences drawing back to his early 90s growing up in Québec City. He was then known simply as Everything, performing live in Raves and Chill Out Room, armed with nothing but a 909, an SH-101 an Ensoniq EPS and a Quadraverb. His love for ambient music never faded. With early influences such as Carl Craig seminal "Landcruising", Warp's "Artificial Intelligence" and Black Dog Production "Bytes", this album bridges the gap between here and there, now and then : where time stands still.

This is a collaborative release from Compost Records and Drumpoet Community.

About All Is Well:

All Is Well is Frédéric Blais's latest musical playground, known to the world of Electronic Music for the past 25 years as Fred Everything. He initially started this new project incognito with acclaimed releases on labels such as Drumpoet Community, Compost, Permanent Vacation, Mule Music and Prins Thomas's Internasjonal. Under that alias, he also collaborated with Lauer and Martin Iveson (Atjazz). An exploration into a more electronic universe, this new platform allowed him to create freely within different genres free of expectations. As a DJ, All Is Well performed in Paris with Trentemøller and Live at Mutek Festival in Montreal where he premiered the songs from his forthcoming album on Compost, A Break In Time. His releases have gained strong support from people like Dixon and Âme.
