My upcoming album 'Lyra'
is still at a work-in-progress stage, I'm planning to release it in the autumn. It may well be a 'double album' release.
I'm currently using some new tools, as I felt I was repeating myself with some of the 'tried and tested' methods I've been using for years.
Native Instruments 'Prism'
A very interesting synth, quite unique (apart from Logic's 'Sculpture') and very 'tweakable'.http://www.native-instruments.com/#/en/products/producer/powered-by-reaktor/reaktor-prism/
Created for DJs, but I'm using it for looping, in a quite different way to the traditional 'sound on sound' method of looping. Great fun for industrial style mash-ups (as I believe the young folk call them) of Killing Joke tracks.http://deckadance.image-line.com/
For controlling the playback / looping in Deckadance. A neat little unit, I'm looking at the other nano series units as well.http://www.korg.co.uk/products/software_controllers/nano2/sc_nano2.php
A tentative DVD release of my recent video work is still on the cards. The more recent videos really need to be seen in high resolution, such is the subtle nature of them. More info to follow.
