Yet more ambient strangeness, this time quite a bit more rythmic than ambient. One of these tracks is a waltz. I love waltzes. They're waaaaay cooler than fez.


released March 21, 2013

Simon Robinson programmed the rythm on Odyssey of the Sorceror. This was played on a Creamware Prodyssy, a damn fine bit of hardware. Everything else on all tracks except "Moonrise in Arboria" was played on VSTs. Everything on Moonrise is analogue except 1 VST line and some sampled mellotron-like choir.
Analogue kit included: Octave CAT, Moog Rogue, Yamaha CS15, Korg Polysix, Korg Mono-poly, Roland Juno 6, Roland Juno 60, Korg Maxi duophonic synth (the rubbery bassline). All the analogue lines were recorded live at the same time. Which involved me running around a roomfull of boxes twiddling knobs like flamin' blinko. None of which helped my repetitive-knob-twiddling-injury syndrome, contracted in 1962, which is now bad enough to require lobe-surgery of the brain.

Tracks recorded (more or less) in 2011.

Tracks 4 & 5 are free to download.

Cover scribbles by me.

I've been writing music since I was very young, having abandoned piano lessons for a Casio VL Tone and two reel2reel tape recorders. I'm inspired by early Tangerine Dream and bleepy radiophonica, such as may be found enhancing 1960s Dr Who. I've written music for BBC Dr Who audio plays and live local performances. Delia Derbyshire, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Jerry Goldsmith are among my muses. ... more
