On New Year’s Eve 2014, another childhood ambition got ticked off the list; Namely to publish an album for public sale – Huzzah! So I’ve taken the liberty of embedding it here and adding some details below:
This album is an electronica set made on and inspired by the sights, sounds and smells of London’s public transport systems.
I’ve been dabbling with music as a hobby for many years, and I’ve long been frustrated by the commute taking time away from home-life that I’d prefer to use for other things, music included. And then along came Nanostudio on the iPhone, and I quickly found myself able to use the commute time to actually *make* music.
I’m immensely proud to have gotten “Exit to street only” this far from my train seat – well actually, about two and a half years of commutes, some seated but many not. Composing and sometimes recording on my iPhone and then my iPad has been an incredible learning and growing experience. Yes, some recording and mixing of some vocal lines was done at home, as was the mixing and mastering, and during that latter process some sounds were replaced using Sunrizer on my iPad.
Like what you hear? It’s only £5 on Bandcamp, following the “Buy” link in the embed link above, or going to the album page here.
