A selection of some of my earliest work dating from the early nineties. It’s an interesting compendium – listening back to it now, it appears I was obviously more into minimalism and beats – this reflected the type of music that I was listening to during this time.
At the time, my kit list was pretty basic. Most of these tracks were composed using my first studio setup which comprised a 12 track Mackie desk, an Akai S01 sampler [15.1 seconds of sampling time, woo-hoo!!], a Novation BassStation, a Korg 05R/W and an Alesis Quadraverb effects unit alongside a 486 PC running Cubase 1 for sequencing. These were the days before the advent of computer-based audio editing. As a modern composer, it’s hard to imagine life without editing software such as Sony’s Sound Forge.
So consequently, these tracks are all live takes, either transcribed from DAT or audio cassette, hence the hiss that appears on some of these pieces. However, I’ve spent some time re-mastering and EQing each track, so they sound pretty acceptable.
