This record is a total freedom for me, a step closer to myself, to sharing the music I hear in my head, that I am reaching to capture and preserve when I am in the studio writing. It is a combination of my past and future. Bringing to life choice moments from live sets, sampling and manipulating sections from past original material, and sitting down in front of my instruments playing deeper into each song. A blend of spontaneity and careful craftsmanship.
An estuary is where the freshwater river meets the salt water of the ocean. These boundary zones are blooming with life and activity. This record is a mixing and melting point, a fusion of the influences that have shaped me up to this point.
When it comes to producing, I am always self-sampling. I have a huge archive of music that goes decades back, with songs written for different purposes and events, ideas, sound design sessions, field recordings and more. I am constantly mining this archive for material and ideas, and of course always adding to it with each new release I create. Pathway (EP) comes from this sonic space, even though each track is it’s own world.
Opening on the title track, a bruising slice of machine techno stands out throughout “Pathway”. On “Ah-Shu-De-Ohu”, paranoid chimes swirl out of focus while chopped up vocals command attention. Free floating chords glide through a meditative soundscape on closer “Line Through”.
Pathway is available in vinyl format and distributed by Rubadub.
