  • JS19 and processed from those improvisations : ) I recorded my own audio samples and then processed them through filters ect and mixed them into Reason. Then I just used Audacity to apply finishing touches such as levels and fade ins/outs. Just took some practice! And thanks again man, I honestly appreciate that you enjoy it because there's definitely a lot of emotion and effort behind it - nice to see it come through to at least someone : )

  • JS19 This started with me just messing around too haha - you just sort of clean things up a bit after messing around and get better at messing around until you can write something half decent! I used Reason and made instruments and samples from scratch, then controlled them from a MIDI source (my digital piano). The compositions were pretty much borne from keyboard controlled improvisation as the basis, then tinkered with

  • JS19 and thanks - sound, and the nature of sound has always been really special to me, so I definitely wanted a way to sort of creatively explore background sound and echoic memory in a musical way. Hopefully I do how i feel a bit of justice! My first EP is worth checking out too (now I've revised all the tracks about 20 times each - they were so s***e when I was starting out haha), but the mastering is a bit dodgy so don' expect perfection :P thanks again man, I can't tell you how much I appreciate

  • JS19 Don't put yourself down man, your stuff sounds pretty great to me - I especially love the textures on Beyond the Light and your new EP/song definitely hits the right vibe. I can definitely hear 'The Place Where the Black Stars Hang' influence : ) And don't worry - I'm a massive perfectionist and have wanted to cut (especially the start) of Afterimage down for ages just have been busy writing a paper and didn't have the time...

  • JS19 Hey man, so I actually had some free time, and cut some of the sections of Afterimage that dragged a bit - am much happier with it now! It's down to 12ish minutes which works a lot better I think
