Experimental ambient electronica EP
Released by BFW recordings 31 January 2013
The new experimental ambient EP from Bing Satellites.
A heady mix of ambient dub and glitchy electronics along with lush strings and atmospheres.
The songs on this EP, unusually for me, all came to life through different processes:
Sleepwalking is built around the rhythms of a loop of sound put through a resonator. The sound I recorded when I stuck a microphone out of my window. At that moment, a couple of neighbours were putting out their rubbish. That is what you can hear at the start and throughout the track.
The Dream is an editing version of a jam I did having fun with a new synth sound (the wobbly log drum type sound).
Of Better Times is made entirely of layered and looped samples - each sample a different length.
Slider was recorded just after I completed the Forever EP and played and sequenced in the same way.
Awakening is a mixture of all of the above - everything but the kitchen sink!
