ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Having moved house it seemed a nice idea to try and capture something of the new world in a piece of music.

The idea of the sonic postcard has been around for quite a while and my new home village seemed perfectly suited to it, nestled on the side of a mountain between the sea, the quarry the forest the express way and the farm that (until recently unknown to me) my Great great Grandfather owned over a century ago.

Technically the music bridges a number of different worlds as the slightly contradictory title would suggest. The opening section is based within a soundscape aesthetic using a number of natural sounds, often with no attempt to conceal their origin. This gives way to a more acousmatic style which none the less attempts to maintain a pitched and rhythmically based drive harking away from the concrete style and aiming at something far older. The final section joins these two main ideas up.... hopefully:)

Turn it up loud!

Originally composed in 8 channel surround sound for Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) Belfast.
