about

This album came about from two initially independent ambient projects, intended for separate releases that as time went by seemed to complement each other more and more until I made the decision to release them as one overall piece. If you can resist the urge of the instant generation and can take the time to listen to the album in one go, I encourage you to do so.

Sometimes pieces want to go in their own direction regardless of what the composer intends and if I've learned one thing over the years it is that if at all possible, listen... and follow. You often end up in a place you didn't imagine, but you rarely regret it. Unless you're working on a commission in which case you can end up in trouble :-)

Another aspect of these pieces that I find fascinating is that even though they so clearly want to bring themselves together in their final form, the tools I used to create them differ drastically from piece to piece. These tools include live instrument recording, analogue synths, digital synths, soft synths, outboard hardware, generative processes and improvisation. One piece didn't hit a DAW at all until mastering.
