about

These recordings began with playing Xpand 2,the software instrument included in Pro Tools.
I was listening to the electric piano instruments and tried out a few different settings until i got the sound that became the inspirational building block for these compositions.
A kind of sonar ping.
Lost, lonesome.
A sound resonant with searching and finding.
A hopeful enquiry sent into the depths awaiting reply.
I was reminded of listening to Pink Floyd's Meddle when I was a youngster and the emotional impact sounds and music had when i was just a listener.
Just listening is an important part of composition. Karlheinz Stockhausen said as much.
So did the guys in Can.
Just listening is sometimes the hardest thing you can do.
Just listening is sometimes the most important and rewarding thing you can do.
In these recordings I tried to just listen.
The sea ebbed and flowed.
