Twilight Sessions volume 9

live ambient album

Released by Free Floating 24 November 2011

Bing Satellites - Twilight Sessions volume 9

The ninth album in the Twilight Sessions series
and the second to be released by the rather wonderful netlabel Free Floating.

The music on this album was recorded in June and July 2011.

Each piece starts as a blank canvas.

I have an evolving set of preselected sounds on the computer - maybe a dozen or so - altered pianos, lush strings and synths. I make this sounds flexible so I can change them as I play. As well as these, I can add notes from various real, usually heavily processed instruments, such as clarinet, fretless bass, guitar and voice.

The music is played into a long, slowly decaying loop.

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.
