Towards the end of 2020 a friend and I were discussing my creative process. This friend has been a long term mentor having helped me develop my music learning system Music Skills.
I was interested to see how much more efficiently I could write music whilst still keeping the quality and depth, so we set upon an experiment. My friend would give me a title as a starting point and an ambitious deadline for each track in turn.
Over a 5 week period I learnt that my creative process benefits from considered bursts of focus away from distractions, and that occasionally I need a little more time to fully allow the musical ideas to develop. But overall it turns out I can write meaningful music far faster than I’d previously thought possible.
To my surprise the result is what I consider to be some of my best work. This forms the first volume of my new album series Notes from the Void - Volume 1. I hope you enjoy it.
What people are saying
The atmospheric result is a 55-minute work featuring six freeform ambient-guitar soundscapes where the introspective and melancholic shake hands firmly. In addition I feel there’s something thought-provoking and nocturnal shimmering between the slow evolving current of wavering, attentively layered textures. This arises especially profound on “Illusion of Substance” as it swirls effortlessly in a lush, fluid expanse before reaching out to symphonic-ethereal heights on “Time Lapse”. On the final track, “The Awakening Paradox”, things wind down in immersive, introspective spherescapes.
Those who want a hardcopy of the album shouldn’t wait too long as only 100 factor-pressed cds have been manufactured.
