Twilight Sessions volume 8
live ambient album
Released by Free Floating 4 August 2011
The eighth album in the Twilight Sessions series and the first to be released by Free Floating.
Like the first seven volumes, this is an album of completely improvised, live ambient music.
The music on this album was recorded December 2010 to April 2011.
Each piece starts as a blank canvas. I have no preconceived idea of what the music will sound like.
The music is built around a long, slowly decaying loop.
I add notes from synths, guitar, clarinet and voice (usually heavily processed) to build sounds and textures that evolve slowly.
These loops are quite long (often around 90 seconds or more) and with very little rhythm to speak of, it is difficult to know precisely where I am in the loop, so I can add notes and sounds where I see fit, but can never know exactly what I am adding these notes to.
Therefore, it must be said that although I am the one making these sounds and creating this music, much of it is down to serendipity.
