Latest release on Bandcamp – Hiemal – Free Download

Just a little announcement to let you know that my latest release ‘hiemal’ is now available to download for free from Bandcamp. Grab it while you can as Bandcamp does limit the number of free versions.

330 – Coldhead

There is something about the end of winter that lifts my mood and has my mind daydreaming of better days ahead.

However, it’s also the time when all the bugs and colds seem to flourish. You go to bed feeling fine, have a restless night (no change there) and awake in a totally blocked up state.

I have a sore throat, raspy cough, headache, super-loud tinnitus and a general wish to stay in bed.

So with my coldhead, I quickly made this representation of the sound of the inside of my head when I woke and the mood I am in because of it.

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.

Ambient Compilation 30

Here is the thirtieth compilation that I have made for you all.

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.

291 to 300 – 96kbps – zip file (36Mb)
291 to 300 – 320kbps – zip file (115MB)

299 – Fracture

Woke again to a head filled with high-pitched interference and sounds that appear to be fractured. It could have been triggered by playing a little too much with some bell samples yesterday. This piece is the result of that play.

292 – Background Hum

Woke to another dawn chorous riddled with tinnitus interference. Grabbed a couple of incidental background field recordings and noodled around with them to compliment the aural effect in my head.

Ambient Compilation 29

Here is the twenty ninth compilation that I have made for you all.

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. Please donate and help the cause?

Please go to http://www.justgiving.com/ambienteerforautism for more information.

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.

281 to 290 – 96kbps – zip file (40Mb)
281 to 290 – 320kbps – zip file (129MB)

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?

Thank you to all of you who’ve helped, or intend to help soon.

287 – Frequencies

Have woken with bad Tinnitus this morning and there are a whole bunch of frequencies reaching my brain that the normal bedroom birdsong is barely audible to me.

So before I started work, I decided to finish off a simple little piece that I started last night before bed. However, it now has some added multi-band dynamic effects, to really accentuate the sense of what the space around me sounds like right now.

Lots of buzzing, momentary imagined electronic noises and words… oh and my relentless refrigerator that seems more vocal than usual today. I’ve learned to embrace these odd days of noise. I hope there is something in it that you can enjoy also.
