363 – Sway

A very simple swaying synth wash in homage to the fallen trees that once made the view from my window a thing of beauty before the winds rolled in.

357 – Elevation

A slow drifting minimal piece to reflect the mood today brings for a myriad of reasons. Another addition to the ‘Recycler’ release due to go up on Bandcamp this weekend.

355 – For Steve

Hearing of the passing of a Twitter and Facebook friend, Steve Morton, last month knocked me for six. He’d died a few weeks earlier and although I’d noticed I’d not heard from him for a while, the thought that anything was wrong never crossed my mind. They say online friends are not true friends, but his kind and supportive words always gave me a sense of the connection of being something real. I’ve struggled to create anything over recent weeks. I miss his tweets. He would have told me not to worry and be patient, knowing that the flow would return at some point.

This slow, meditative piece, a reworking of ‘Okno‘ from 2009, is for him, his family and anyone lucky enough to have known him… real-life or otherwise.

‘Recycler’ will be up on BandCamp in a few days.

354 – Germania

This is a drone made out of a four year old EuroVision piece I made called Germany. It brings to an end this little bunch of recycler pieces. I’ll bundle them together and stick them up on Bandcamp soon.

Not too long, not to short…

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.

349 – Jetsam

This piece is essentially a working of Flotsam from a couple of years ago. This piece recycles the original to bring them both to a fitting conclusion. It’s a long slow moving, sometimes dreamy, sometimes not so drone with some little bursts soft analogue distortion that I really like. I hope you do too?

340 – Wilderness

This little ambient drone is dedicated to the beautiful Nickie Fisher, my love, my best friend and soulmate. We celebrate five years together tomorrow. Without her, there would be no music or imagery for me to share. It’s that simple. She constantly leads me out of the wilderness.

335 – Golden Age (Pockets of Silence)

I think the spoken words in this piece, from a BBC documentary, a quotation from the artist Mark Rothko, sums up how I feel about life and the importance to me of the creative process. I’d be lost without it.

Sorry, it’s been a while. I’ll try not to leave it so long next time.
