Work is swallowing up must of my time at the moment so I haven’t had as much time to create and share. I hope this fills the gap for a couple of days.
This is the result of playing around in Live 8, with Simpler, Reaktor and a Max for Live midi plug-in call the Schwarzonator, which is brilliant fun for someone like me, who knows what he wants things to sound like, but can’t play more than grade 2 piano! ;)
This little piece is dedicated to Imogen Heap, having to ‘Wait it out’ on her throat for tonight. I’m desperate to see her, but know she has to protect her voice. Get well soon Immi!
A year has passed and here’s the twentieth zip file containing the latest ten tracks posted.
There are two zip files, one for lower bitrate MP3s and the other for the rather better 320kbps files.
All of the tracks here are free for you to download and distribute. That said, please don’t forget Haiti, if you enjoy any of these pieces, please make a donation to the agency of your choice, however small it may need to be.
It’s day three hundred & sixty five of my ambient experiment. I can’t believe a year has passed by since I started to share my regular noodles. This piece is dedicated to each and everyone of you that have taken the time to listen and encourage me. Thank you.
I hope there is something within the 200 that you particularly enjoy.
Whilst I will still put up regular bits and pieces, I now plan to start working on a ‘proper’ release, start painting again & pick up a camera soon too.
A special mention to my Nickie, without her, this, and any future output may never have existed. Niall too, bless him. :)
In setting up my new workspace, I had to deal with ridding my set-up of ground noise/hum. I could hear a couple of buzzing frequencies in everything I was playing. Oddly, to me, it’s not always an unpleasant distraction.
I got to thinking how I could make a small noisy yet harmonic piece that could represent the sound fizzing through the wires under my desk.
Finally finished moving from Somerset and I’m settling in to my new home with Nickie in Guildford. Only just managed to squeeze my little music making set-up into an alcove space, but it’s fine for me to do my thing. Here is the first piece made since my arrival.
