Written and performed by Ian Wellman. The Night the Stars Fell is a journey that begins in a fire-scarred forest. The fourth album by Ian Wellman, and his Ash International debut, The Night the Stars Fell is built from field recordings from the forests and deserts of Southern California, shortwave radio static, and cassette tape loops layered in distortion. The eleven tracks across the album are carried by the physicality of wind which drove the fires that burned the forests where the sounds were recorded. The Night the Stars Fell explores a time of rebuilding, of searching for a new path. Ian Wellman is a sound artist currently residing in Los Angeles, CA. His recordings have been published by Room40, Dragon's Eye Recordings, Luminous Drift, and Industrial Coast. Ian is an IATSE Y-1 journeyman, and a member of the LA-based sound collective VOLUME. Recorded, composed, and mixed in Los Angeles between 2021-2023. Field recordings recorded in the forests and deserts of Southern California.
