FLAC versions of my albums now available
I’ve uploaded all my solo albums up on to my Bandcamp site.
My primary reason for doing this is to make them available in FLAC format. In case you weren’t aware of this, FLAC is a lossless audio format, ensuring that the original audio quality of the releases is preserved. Almost all of my albums are now sold out as CD-Rs, so the original wav files aren’t available anymore. So, for those who would like the best audio quality downloads (and exclusive high resolution artwork included), here’s the place to go:
Of course, Bandcamp makes the releases available as the highest quality mp3s too. I’m becoming quite a fan of the site and what they do !
Shimmering jewels in the deep mid-winter sky.
With ‘Harmony through Conflict’, I set out to create an album that allowed me to experiment beyond my usual ways of working. I used some of the more ‘traditional’ instrumentation and sound sources that are commonly associated with ambient music in musically diverse and subtley different ways. Oblique, rhythmic elements were added as part of this experimental approach and less emphasis was placed on sound-design and more on the compositional ebb and flow of the individual tracks.
The album could be described as being primarily ‘dark’, but I would prefer to use the term ‘heavy’, this ‘heaviness’ was offset with tonal elements adding contrast and balance.
Headphone listening recommended.
