Songs of the Long Land

A largely peaceful and atmospheric ambient soundscape, out now on download

Release date: 23 January 2018

Bing Satellites - Songs of the Long Land

A largely peaceful and atmospheric ambient soundscape improvised and recorded in one take and released the same day.

Due to a very hectic schedule, mainly taken up by my final year at university, I have not had time to record any music for a long time (31st October was the last time I recorded anything live). During this time, I have taken my studio apart to sell much of my equipment.

On a break from university, I finally had a chance to rebuild my new, more minimal set up. This is the first piece I have recorded in the new set up.

I broadcast some of this performance on Facebook, although the audio and video quality is very poor.

Playing after a break is usually a pleasure: I forget how much fun this way of making music is. After such a long break, at least for me, I decided to release this performance on the same day as recording it. One of the joys of being in charge of your own music!

Please enjoy this album safe in the knowledge that I'm probably recording another album as you read this ha!

For those who want to know such things, the new minimal set up for this recording was:
Roland SH-32 synth, Novation KS Rack synth, my trusty 34 year old Japanese Stratocaster played with an ebow with Reason for all the other sounds.
Everything goes through Ableton Live.
