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.Nine-track album "Yukon Youth" was inspired from a two-week trek across the grand and extraordinary landscapes of Alaska. Dominic started recording the album in late 2014 with long time collaborator, producer and engineer Ross Halden of ghost town recordings, with mastering by Tim Hann. After a short hiatus from other projects, the record was finally completed over the summer of 2016.The album takes its title and theme from Jon Krakauser book Into the Wild, a true and tragic story of the late Chris McCandless who in 1992 travelled alone into the Alaskan wild. Deane states that the new album was partly influenced by this story and expresses the new record captures a sonically journey that evolves isolation, beauty and harshness. Excellent, challenging nine track (45mins) album of moody, dreamy and textural soundscapes that shift unpredictability like the Alaska landscape.
