I recently uploaded my second album to bandcamp. None of the major elements from my last album (piano, guitar, vocals) were present on this album but it should still have a similar 'personality' to it. As guitar is my primary instrument, this album was a bit of a challenge. There is not one guitar on it it so I had to learn new workflows on the laptop.
Ambientish started off being inspired by Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works, which are some of my favorite albums, however as I created it, it branched out and took on other influences such as the dark ambient on tracks 5 and 7.
The whole album was created in Ableton Live. Tracks 1, 4 and 6 have more of a mainstream electronic sound and consist of synths (mostly free VSTs), drums machines and samples. The remaining tracks are field recordings (recorded through my Zoom H4 recorder) processed through hardware or laptop effects and are a bit more abstract.
Hope you like.
