I've started trying to produce some suitable artwork with view to progressing to video production as well. Here's my first attempt at an image using the Chaotica fractal software. Very cool program that will need a considerable time input from me.... I'm learning :-)
I've just put a new video up on YouTube for my track "Nereus" from the Petroglyph Music 2016 Xmas compilation album. Here it is :-)
Thought I'd repost this one. Great track, cool video :-)
I've put a new video for my track "Cryoviva" up on YouTube. Enjoy :-)
I've contributed a track to the Xmas 2016 compilation album from Petroglyph Music. The track is called "Nereus" and is track 90 of the compilation. Lots of other really cool contributions from other electronic musicians on there too. You can find it here; https://archive.org/details/Petroglyph507-TheX-MasCompilation2016
I've released my album "Become The Sea Itself" on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and the usual other digital sources. It's out today !!!!
Great to see that Music From Outer Space - the very best resource for home synth builders on the web - are back up 'n' running. It's being operated by Debra Wilson now after Ray Wilson sadly passed away.
According to the website, plans are afoot to offer 5U and Eurorack formats of MFOS modules. For the now, all of Ray's fantastic synth designs seem to be available again, along with a wealth of synth and electronics information :-)
The MFOS website is here;
I'm having great fun at the moment messing with synths various. I've recently got hold of a Moog Werstatt and a Korg SQ-1 (details on gear page coming soon :-)). The SQ-1 sequences the Werkstatt perfectly and the 2 in combination make all kinds of fun noises.
I'm also recording some new ambient stuff - working towards a true ambient album as my next release, whilst also mixing an EP for Less Than Three to be released soon.
I've cobbled together a couple of tracks so far as entries to the "Image inspired dare" and the "One sample dare" competitions on the marvellous Ambient Online forum, and am also currently polishing off another one for the latest "dare". Busy times :-), but loads of fun :-) :-)
I've just put my new album "Become The Sea Itself" up on Nimbit for digital download as .mp3 or .wav on a name-your-price basis. Get there and download it!!!
It's out!!! My new ambient music album "Become The Sea Itself" is out today on Bandcamp. You can hear it here on the player on the Sound and Vision page.
I think it's my best work to date, but they all say that....
My new ambient/chill album will be called "Become The Sea Itself" and will be released next week, all being well. For now, I've put a couple of taster tracks up on Soundcloud :-)
Soundcloud have started offering Internet "radio" streams. I've set up a YnotB radio that plays music similar to mine. Great to chill to. Check it out :-)
Sad news indeed. Ray wilson of Music From Outer Space passed away on 21st July after battling cancer.
His approach of providing readily available designs, parts, kits and generous advice to home synth builders was inspirational. He will be greatly missed.
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.
