290 – Diumenge II

Another ethereal and almost dream-like piece made using the looped, layered and effected captured organ sounds from last Sunday in Palma Cathedral.

Hope you enjoy it.

289 – Diumenge I

I was in Palma de Mallorca for a few days to try and boost my Vitamin D levels and managed to persuade @nixnoo that it would be a good idea to bring along my Zoom H1 (as it is a little more discreet than my Zoom H4n) to capture a few sounds here and there.

In order to ensure its use didn’t encroach to much on our time away, I restricted to recording just a few really interesting sources.

This piece is the first of a few that uses the sound of the órgano mayor of Palma Cathedral. The recordings can’t reveal the depth and colour that filled the space last Sunday evening, but hopefully you’ll enjoy them enough to seek out the real thing next time you’re in Mallorca.

288 – Airwaves

The sonic distortion that Tinnitus brings, whilst sometimes annoying, can also make certain moments quite interesting.

As I woke this morning, I could hear the roar of the A3 in the distance fading in and out along with the movement of the wind outside my window. The birdsong triggering little sweeps of noise in my head. This combination of the airwaves and my brain’s electrical murmurings is captured in this little ditty. More of a mini soundscape than a piece of music.

Please may I remind you of my charity offering of one donation for the 24 releases I have made so far? The target has been reached, but I’d for us to raise as much as possible together. If you can’t donate, please spread the word to as many people as possible?

World Autism Awareness Day

Throughout April 2011 I’m giving away 320k MP3 versions of all 24 ambient music releases that I have made in return for donations to the National Autistic Society.

http://www.justgiving.com/ambienteerforautism

Once you’ve donated, you’ll find a special web link in the thank you message. Please grab whatever you like right up until April 30th 2011.

If you’re one of those lovely people that has already paid for any of my music, or you do decide to make a donation, I will be creating a special EP that will not be released publicly, but only for you, as thank you for supporting me and a cause close to my heart.

As a parent of a teenage son with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, I am only too aware of the difficulties faced by those with Autism and their families.

My target is a tough one, but with your help, I’d love to beat it.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – together we raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Please donate if you can, no matter how little that might be.

Thank you,

James
