the Birds Companion

Whether it’s a distant galaxy, the top of a mountain, or a lonely path through a lush forest, the music of The Bird’s Companion is bound to take you somewhere. Composer and multi-instrumentalist Casey van Wensem crafts sonic landscapes that evoke distant places, forgotten memories, and lost emotions. His first EP, “After the Fire” (2015), earned him comparisons to contemporaries like Nils Frahm, HelkAa, and Lowercase Noises. He followed up this release in with “Still Life” (2016), a four track EP of delicate and intimate piano pieces. In addition to recording his own music, van Wensem has also composed custom music for clients in the business and creative sectors, and works as a music editor and sound engineer for TV and film productions.

"Just beautiful piano/post-rock music. Puts a smile on my face every time I listen to it. This music gives me the feeling of walking through nature on a sunny day and actually realizing how beautiful life is." – Post-Rock Essentials
