The Twilight Sessions are a series of albums of live, improvised ambient music.
Early in 2010, I was trying out a new studio set up which included a new looping system and ways of inputting sounds from software synths and external sources, such as microphone and guitar, into that system.
The sounds that came out blew me away.
I could now create long, slowly evolving ambient pieces that seemed deeper and much more personal to anything I had created before.
Each piece starts as a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of where the music will go. Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay. These loops can be quite long, so as a performer I can add notes as I see fit, but only have a certain amount of control over what is heard - the rest is serendipity.
I hope you enjoy listening to these albums as much as I enjoy creating them!
