Toby Wiltshire is a composer, sound artist, saxophonist and meditator who lives in Leeds. His work is predominantly in audio-visual art installations and ‘beatless’ electronic music.

‘Shunyata : Emptiness’ follows on from Toby Wiltshire’s two previous self- released albums ‘Surfacing’ (2019) and ‘Selected Works 2012-2017’ (2017). The album uses imagery and concepts from the Buddhist world as a starting point to inspire musical creation. Toby uses field recordings, modular synthesis and software in a drifting and loose compositional style influenced by abstract visual art, often working with texture and subtle combinations of the natural and the synthetic.

"A glorious immersion of sound, light and texture" - Hannah Peel. Night Tracks, BBC Radio 3

"Toby Wiltshire has been producing and making music for around 20 years. He’s been widely influenced by the visual arts, his explorations in meditation and his experiences working with audio-visual art installations. That knowledge and experience combined with a spiritual sensibility and a deep appreciation of how to listen has led to the creation of a genuinely magnificent listening experience." - Bobby Gant, Iniquitous Glory

"There is an intelligence and level of originality in this collection that has to be admired, one that creates an utterly enveloping and thought-provoking listening experience. It’s like stepping into a cocoon and isolating yourself from the craziness of the world we live in today. We could all benefit from that..." - Gordon Rutherford, Louder Than War

"An album of profundity and aching beauty. If you are desirous of the profound and seeking beauty, then this is the album you need..." - Paul Laird, Our Sound Music

"Shunyata does have the power to remove yourself from the world for a while and absorb its message. It is beautiful and it is rich and it is easy to say that with it Toby Wiltshire can indeed sit at the table and break bread with the greats of the genre that have gone before..." - Simon Tucker, At The Barrier

"Wiltshire’s free-standing style allows for slow, untethered musical movement, adding field recordings, modular synths and software to the equation. It is music for mindfulness, but with a license to develop along the way..." - Ben Hogwood, Arcana
