On the face of it, it may appear that there are no new musical projects coming out of ‘Flame Acres’, but I’m actually working on a few projects, behind the scenes. Some more definite than others.
Firstly, my next ambient album. It will be based around female voice and something of an oceanic theme, it will be reflective and ‘pure’ ambient, contrasting with my more recent offerings.
I’m currently working on a Korg Gadget project on the iPad, this will be more in my ‘Formbank’ ouvre – definitely not ambient ! One reviewer (Dene Bebbington) described one of my previous Formbank albums as ‘psychedelic EM’, which I think is a pretty apt description.
I’m also looking at a generative ambient project, on the iPad, thats much less defined at present. Lastly, I’m still looking at some kind of guitar album release (as I have been for years), it’s becoming more defined now.
As my last releases were pretty large ones (in terms of duration / work involved etc.), I want to space out whatever I release this year, the ambient voice and the Formbank projects will definitely be out later this year, the others probably not.
On a different note, I’m getting into ‘iphone photography’ (iphone-ography ?), it’s early steps for me with this, but the results have been encouraging. I’m currently exploring what the iphone 5 is capable of. I wanted something that I could carry around and use quickly.
