Stolace is a musical project by composer and musician Michael Tangen, an acoustic instrumental music expression created with the intent to help one find peace, a state of relaxation, calmness, and focus. The term stølace is a mashup of the terms stoic and solace, to invoke a sense of stoic-like peace and comfort.
Michael Tangen has been creating music over two decades in different manners, most recently under the pseudonymn Michael Miles. But through a variety of events, Michael dropped the pseudonym and all past musical ambitions and passions for a change in personal philosophy and to take his music down a different path.
Under the project name STOLACE, he is solely focused on composing and creating music for the pure joy of creating something that wasn't before — creating music without the trappings of vain ambitions and higher aspirations completley out of his control. Each acoustic instrumental piece is paired with a peaceful nature-themed video to help one find a state of mindfulness, peace, and tranquility.
