about

This is a track recorded in January 2017.

A track from a new album that I'm releasing later this week.

I've recorded loads of material over the last 2 or 3 months. A lot gets shared on here, others I just delete straight away, then there's a lot that I've kept back. This is one such track. The tracks are a kind of barometer of how I'm feeling each day, it's kind of interesting for me to listen back to them. To be honest, I record so much that I often don't remember how a particular track sounds.

This is all just 6 string electric bass and ebow. Plus some field recording done on my iPhone.

Pretty much everything I do is totally improvised, like this track. It features sounds that I've recorded, the sounds at the start of this were recorded on a windy and cold day at my local park.

All of my effects processing is done on a 2012 MacBook Pro, running Logic X. The signal goes from the MacBook onto a Revox A77 reel to reel. It's put back into the digital realm for putting on CD and Soundcloud and here.

I'd really like to keep it analogue, but that's obviously just not possible a lot of the time. Though this album will also be released on cassette tape, as well as digitally and on CD.

The CD will feature a lot of original photographs and artwork, plus a booklet of stuff, that some may find interesting.
