I'm currently working on my next album that will (most probably) be purely of ambient music. In the last few weeks I've put 2 new ambient pieces up on Soundcloud (follow the orange cloud link under my beautiful ;-( portrait photo to see my Soundcloud site). I'm very much enjoying working in this genre at the moment - it offers fascinating possibilities for the application of music theory and the creation of mood and atmosphere. Eyes peeled for more coming soon :-)
I've just opened a new online store to promote and sell my music. I've decided to put everything up there at a 'name your price' price tag. Currently only Shake A Leg is available there, but I will soon expand it to offer all of my music to date. You can find it here;
Elsewhere on this site, I list my influences. In reality, it all boils down to Bowie and Eno. A sad day.
My new 5-track EP "Shake a Leg" is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all other good digital sources. Enjoy :-)
I've just released an EP entitled "Shake a Leg". It's decidedly more up tempo than my other solo work, and I genuinely feel it's my best and most accessible music to date. At the moment it's only available from Bandcamp, here;
The full release via the usual sources will follow.....
Found this interview with Brian Eno. Love it. Thought I'd share
It seems Ray Wilson, the man behind the fantastic Music From Outer Space DIY synth business is ill with cancer. This is bad news indeed. I have done limited business with him, but during that, gained an impression of him as being one of this world's good guys. As he and his wife are both self-employed and therefore have limited health insurance coverage, there is a fund-raising site to try to help support them through these difficult times.
Please suppport them if you can.
Discount news first. - I've put a special offer up for my music downloads from Bandcamp. You can now download my entire discography at a discount of 50%. In real terms this means 2 albums, 1 ep and 2 singles, all for the bargain price of €7 or equivalent. Follow the links in the players on my Sound and Vision page to access my pages on Bandcamp :-)
In the other news, I've just had my sax repadded, serviced and set up. Excellent work and fair pricing carried out by Saxophon Kühl in Germany. I recommend them highly :-)
I've put a few new tracks on Soundcloud recently. They're mainly instrumentals, but perhaps show the direction I'm moving in and the musical things that are interesting me at the moment. Still have lots of plans and ideas for different things though. Really want to do some new ambient stuff and maybe some trance-like tracks.... We'll see.
Anyhow, I've now posted those Soundcloud tracks on the Sound and Vision page here. Hope you enjoy :-)
