Four Reasons

Originally released June 26, 2008 on the Oceanbase netlabel


This album was composed when I was concentrating on making extremely minimal and ambient music and heavily involved in the netlabel scene.

This version is a 'highlights' or 'best of' - each song was originally much longer and released in an 'artists' edition of a 4-CD box set (only 10 copies made!) as a fundraiser for archive.org

This recording is in the public domain


Oceanbase is proud to present you with the latest by prolific Canadian composer Lee Rosevere. Four Reasons is a series of quiet, relatively long works you can immerse yourself in, great for meditating or quiet concentration. Although we have delved into restrained material before, this is our first entirely ambient release.

Lee Rosevere is quite the experienced artist, having released on WM Recordings, Proc-Records, Enough Records, Test Tube, and his own Happy Puppy. He has made lots of ambient and avant-garde music, but never quite does the same thing twice; in fact, this may be his most minimal outing to date.

Either way, this is a delightful sound palette of subtle colors to enjoy again and again. Sonically simple, yet compositionally complex. Oceanbase gives you Four Reasons to join us for a swim.
