Recently I've started to feel techno/house to be a little restrictive, and have been much more drawn to simply exploring the near infinite possibilities of the unaccompanied synthesizer. I've tended towards playing a few simple melodies or chords and letting them loop, seeing where each tiny alteration to an effect or a filter can take it.
This a collection of some of the outcomes of these experiments- largely ambient and drone based with forays into arpeggiated melodies reminiscent of the early synthesizer pioneers. They were largely recorded over the winter of 2014-15 using freely available software synthesizers, a broken electric guitar and found sounds recorded in Bradfield, near Sheffield.
