321 – A Song From 7.30 MHz

Another experiment scanning the shortwave bands. Seeking out some odd melodic interlude and once captured, adding reverb and a few other effects and tricks to transform it into a sleepy, filtered soundscape, reminiscent of the imperfect signal, bandwidth and output of my little 1970′s transistor radio.

I love this type of sound and I hope you like this as much as I do?

Ambient Compilation 32

Here is my thirty-second compilation for you all to (hopefully) enjoy.

Consider checking out all my releases on Bandcamp? You can grab pristine versions of most of my work so far and have a variety of formats to choose from. They are free to download, but if you can contribute a just couple of pounds/euro/dollars, it would help and delight me v.much.

Thanks for your support.

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.

311 to 320 – 96kbps – zip file (54Mb)

320 – Brume

A long, slowly moving piece reflecting the heavy fog that hung in the air in the South-East of the UK earlier this week and thus, I fear, the imminent arrival of winter.

Benton (Fenton)

My little insomnia driven ambient take on the #Benton #Fenton meme…

319 – Utah

The final piece in this series of five. It’s an odd one though. Whilst not detached, it’s haunting, dissonant and unsettling. I visited the beaches, experienced a range of emotions and heard voices of every course. When we look at the world today with its economic and political turmoil, we must remember the losses suffered and rememeber that love and respect is the only way forward for us all.

318 – Sword

The fourth of five pieces born out of my trip to Arromanches. I’m under the weather with a severe cold, so my ears are not great and I have particularly nasty tinnitus. That said, sometimes this makes a piece a little unique, despite its melodic simplicity.

317 – Gold

The third piece reflecting the emotional impact of my vist to the Normandy beaches and Arromanches. Particularly poignant given tomorrow and Sunday’s moments of remembrance.

316 – Omaha

The second piece born from the experience of my recent trip to France, where I visited and was moved by the Normandy beaches of Arromanches. A humbling experience.
