Getting quite excited about the new album. 9 tracks are basically finished and playing it through; I'm very happy with it. Great to chill to :-). Hope to release it in the coming weeks - working title "It's an ambient world"
Raining here so decided to do a bit of work on this website. I've added a few new instruments to the My Gear Page and updated a couple of little bits.
The new ambient/chill album is taking shape - am busy writing and recording whenever possible...........
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.
