Made over the space of a month in London in 2017, this album is an ambient, new age exploration suite in 8 parts. Inspired by the vast energy of the city - slowed down x 1000.

This album is instrumental.

"Richard Pike utilises his D E E P L E A R N I N G solo project as an outlet for issuing waves of beatless instrumental beauty.... Soft Confidence fits comfortably into the tradition of Vangelis at his seventies peak: lush and melodic new age compositions, seemingly telling a vague narrative and sewn together by a core concept.... Impeccably crafted, Deep Learning is the luscious background you deserve, scraping away the noise and junk to reveal the constant drift that ties everything together."
- Tristan Bath, The Quietus.
