Strictly Drone II

April 30, 2020

This collection (the second in my occasional drone series) features a Bumblebee, a Shamisen, a Nebulophone and a lot of layering. The photo is of the Moon from our garden, on a long exposure. It moved across the sky while nobody was looking.

I recommend playing this back on good headphones or on a music system with good bass.

Be sure to check the track info for ‘Bee Flight’, for details of how it was made.

Shamisen played by Yukari Lagowski. Bee sounds reproduced with permission.

‘Steppe’ and future S.E.T.I. recordings

September 6, 2009

I’ve been neglecting this site somewhat, posting quite a bit of download release info, but never really engaging the visitor – I apologise! Newest material I’m working on includes a S.E.T.I. track called ‘Steppe’, after a story my sister sent me. As we all know, the Russians have a long history of UFO sightings, well now it appears that they have UFO’s under the sea too! A very worthwhile subject for my investigation. The track is approximately 8 minutes long, with haunting sounds aplenty, and some great Ableton-mashed up Reaktor sequences.

There will be more tracks like this to come, and once I have a big enough collection, I shall be looking for a label to release them into the wild.

For those interested in the technical nature of my S.E.T.I. work, this particular material uses Ableton Live as a sound production and mixing environment, with other sounds being supplied by Reaktor, Reason, iPod Touch running Jasuto and Plogue Bidule.
