GRAINS OF SPACE

Village Green Recordings

(2019)

Grains of Space started life as a series of minimal loops, recorded using a viola da gamba – a stringed instrument most popular in the Renaissance and Baroque eras – and a loop pedal.

 

Using the negative space within each loop as the primary drive for composing, I started this process of ‘joining the dots’, kind of allowing the silence to dictate the next layer, informing the length, pitch and timbre of notes.

Between the overlap and juxtaposition of multiple layers, melodies and rhythms started emerging from relatively erratic elements.

ASYLUM FOR EVE

Village Green Recordings

(2017)

This album comprises a reworked collection of soundtracks I've composed for various films over the years together with new material.

After tracking down an old Bechstein Model 9 upright piano, I set about modifying and preparing it with cardigans, screws and nails in order to provide the textures and timbres I wanted.  In this way, the piano provided both rhythmic and percussive roles on the album. 

 

Techniques also employed on the record include layering of bowed electric  guitars and ukuleles, and fingerpicked violins, banjo and charango.
