about

This album, my third for the RPM Challenge, is made almost exclusively from samples I have recorded this last year as well as a few earlier ones. It was a challenge I set myself partly to see if I could, and partly to actually make use of the interesting noises I've been recording. A lot of the samples have been run through the Ableton Sampler or Granulator, some are stretched, some reversed and some just have lots of reverb added. Sometimes all of those things. Whatever seemed to work.

The titles are very simple ones this time, often just one word, and reflect the dominant (often the only) thing used to make the piece. I quite like the directness of this system, and it reminded me a little of the titles of episodes in the TV series Blackadder II.

The download includes two extra tracks and a PDF booklet telling you a little more about how I made each track.
