Already Complete was written and recorded long distance between Seattle and Chicago in the spring of 2020.
Tyresta & Ruan is the long-distance music project of social workers and friends Nick Turner and Hang Ruan. What started off as infrequent and informal jam sessions has now blossomed into a fruitful and friendship-strengthening musical partnership. Their debut album, “Elements Return," was released on Muzan Editions in 2020 and they are beyond excited to join the Aural Canyon family with the follow up “Already Complete.” Already Complete was written and recorded remotely between Seattle and Chicago in the spring of 2020 during the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic. The music was created utilizing software and Eurorack synthesizers and was informed by both musicians' Zen and mindfulness practices.
Hang Ruan (who also releases music under the name Fostering) began writing music in 1990, and worked in music production in Chicago from 1998-2006. He makes eclectic music utilizing analog and software synthesizers, guitar, piano/keyboard, sound generators, percussion, drum machines, samplers, effects, field recordings, and found sounds. Hang is a psychotherapist and social worker specializing in mindfulness therapy.
Nick Turner began releasing solo music as Tyresta in 2016. He makes music with semi-modular and modular synthesizers, guitar, and Mellotron. Similar to Hang, Nick is also a psychotherapist and social worker specializing in mindfulness therapy.
