EP2 is the second in my four seasons project, exploring autumnal feelings with blustery field recordings and re-sampled instruments that sound like they’ve been caught in the rain.
Composed almost entirely in one evening, ‘Tip Toe’ makes heavy use of my Yamaha VSS200 and its beautiful lo-fi sampling feature – giving the songs guitar a soft but jangly (and also quite noisy) tone.
Featuring my childhood music box sampled through my circuit bent Casio SK1 for some textural loops, and combined with field recordings of a an outdoor chamber orchestra in Budapest for strings and clarinet melodies.
A peaceful track featuring a field recording of the wind chime in the garden of Benjamin Brittens home in Aldeburgh Suffolk. I love how the wind becomes another instrument within the track, alongside the chimes themselves.
Inspired by a peaceful outdoor jam session at nearby Fingringhoe Wick. Featuring guitar recorded on an old minidisc dictaphone, vocals recorded on the trusty Casio SK1 and brass re-recorded through a reel to reel player saved from a skip!
