352 – Sojourn

Another piece made from rummaging through old unused snippets of unwanted recordings. I found a minute or two of my playing an old £99 guitar to make some drones. I find guitars pretty much alien to me, like a foreign land, that I love, yet don’t quite understand.

I recycled it into this little track.

351 – Long Acre

Another little piece using a new melody, some stretched old pad sounds, backed by a sample from Kakistocracy and some street sounds from Long Acre in London.

350 – Lunchtime in Soho

Sorry for the gap since I last shared anything but a combination of work/home life, coupled with a sudden inability to come up with anything new, has laid me low and kept me quiet.

In an attempt to kick start something I took my Zoom H4n to Soho Gardens and recorded the sounds of a sunny spring lunchtime as I wandered around. When I later tried to create a sonic mood to layer over the snippets I’d grabbed, nothing would work. So in a bit of a cheat, as per my last track, I looked back at an old piece and sampled a few little loops from it (Flotsam again!) to create a lazy, meandering feel to the overall piece.

I hope you like it?
