2013 Albums release Info:
I plan to release two albums in 2013, the work is currently in progress and a lot has been done already to get to the point of deciding what to release this year. I have a large pool of work-in-progress material that I’ve selected from and the process of auditioning material that might fit together and making rough initial mixes took some time . Release dates are still too nebulous to refer to, but I hope to get a least one finished before the Summer of this year (I try to look towards the seasons for release times, as opposed to specific dates). The working titles and brief descriptions of the albums are as follows:
‘NYX’ – a ‘hypnotic’ album. I decided to title this one ‘NYX’, as Nyx is the mother of the God of sleep ‘Hypnos’, I felt it was appropriate descriptor for the ‘tone’ of the material that will be on this album. There’s a wonderfully evocative description of the Greek Goddess Nyx on Wikipedia:
“She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.”
‘IRIS’ – a tonal, ‘instrument-based’ album. (in terms of the sound sources I’ve chosen to work with) ‘IRIS’ will probably will run to a long-form / ‘double-album’ duration.
Of course, things may change depending on how the work develops (‘IRIS’ was intended to be released last year !), but this is what I’m working towards. As ever, I will be employing new (to me) techniques and processes in the attempt to explore sonic pastures anew. As an ambient composer, I still have a lot I want to achieve.
