about

A collection of tracks that have been lying around on my laptop, some have been heard before on my Soundcloud page, others not. I've included some edits of tracks that have never been finished. There's also the very first track of this sort that I ever recorded back in the Summer of 2014.

Also contains a track that I wrote and recorded as an exam piece for solo bass and oboe. The oboist is a very nice lady called Gail Ford.

These are all what I call 'ambient bass soundscapes'. It's all just me and my Modulus Quantum 6 string bass, an amazing instrument. Mostly played with an eBow, that's what gives the synth like sounds.

I've kind of changed direction with what I'm doing, so this constitutes an album of where I've been.

I intend my music to draw the listener in, and for the listener to become - for a brief moment in time - part of the music.
My music is mixed so that some tracks are sometimes barely audible, so listening through a good pair of headphones is highly recommended.
