Mists of Time
The process of making a mix is a big part of the game for me. Searching for those ideas and sounds that somehow express what I am trying to convey. I also just love putting things together,that at first glance, would not seem like they would work well. This, to me, enables the audio to do the work, and helps me create a “vision”. Cutting and pasting audio , like a picture collage. I often work on a mix for quite a while, before releasing it. This allows me to dig really deep, and refine the audio.
I incorporate a lot of found sound and field recordings in my work. This makes it very personal, and injects an emotional reality into the music, that otherwise would not be there. Love, death, loss, comedy, psychedelia and cinema are just some of the recurring themes.
I want to be playful, and encourage the listener to discover new worlds or “mini movies” inside their heads when listening.
Time is a haunting dream, sung as a lullaby.
