For anyone interested, I'm currently working on 3 albums at present:
1) An album consisting of tracks made exclusively of sounds made from virtual synths. I wanted to get away from just using the guitar as a sound source and to work with new (to me) instrumentation. So far, its pretty ethereal/sonorous and is far from complete ! I currently have about 90 minutes of raw mixes to work with. Plan to get it released in the summer.
2) A very dark album made from processed binaural recordings/synth textures. Very heavy going - think 'outerstellar-industrial'. Plan to release this this year.
3) A collaboration with 'Achromus' which is more of an instrumental 'song' album. Very different to anything we've released to date. Again, planned to be released this year.
I've spent a lot of time recently working with a vst program called 'Nebula'. This is a program that 'samples' hardware such as reverb units, tape, valve channels. plate reverbs, compressors etc. It really is fantastic, I'II be posting more about this at some point.
