Sheffield based John Shima returns to diametric. with his Isomorphic project and presents his debut album "Memory Weave". The album was crafted in John's studio in the second half of 2014 and is again focusing on modular synthesis experimentation with a strong focus on musicality. The album features a wonderful mix of electronica, IDM, early Warp era deep electronic exploration and electro, and will be a great addition to any collection of Fax Records, Rising High or Likemind. The details and atmosphere created by John are sublime and showcase his skill and experience in creating electronic music with a message, soul and emotion. For fans of B12, early Autechre and Higher Intelligence Agency etc.

I really enjoy the classical - ambient crossover music of Abandoned Toys.  I can't really think of much else that sounds like them.  Any suggestions?

My fifth CD, Incandescent, is now available via Bandcamp (if you have Paypal) and soon, all the other usual places (amazon, iTunes, CD Baby, etc.)

The CD comes in a six-panel four-color glossy eco-wallet.

Incandescent was composed and recorded between October 2014 and January 2015. It is comprised of nine songs, running a total of about 67 minutes. The first three songs are sequence-oriented, Berlin School-esque songs, with the remaining six songs of a much slower nature, much like many of my past sound world drone oriented compositions.

Mastering was done by Chad Kettering at Soniclayers Mastering in Dallas, TX and may be his best mastering of my work yet. The man knows his stuff.

Incandescent was composed entirely within Reason 8. The following
synths and Rack Extensions were used:

Rob Papen Quad
kiloHearts kHs ONE

These are all proprietary to Reason. Mixdown and cleanup was done in
Presonus Studio One II, then passed on to Chad Kettering for mastering,
which was also accomplished in Presonus SO II and various VST plugins.

The CD design and layout was done by me, using various photographs that I took on a recent trip to Monument Valley Arizona. Layout was acheived in Photoshop CS5, after which the designs were converted to .pdf and sent to the factory.

The CD is dedicated to composer Richard Burmer, who passed away in 2006. He was a profound influence on my own musical direction. His picture is displayed inside the eco-wallet and was graciously provided to me by Richard's family, along with many other photo from which I was allowed to choose. Song number four on the CD, "Valley Of The Rocks" features a piccolo-like riff at the end, which was composed by Richard Burmer and first appeared on his album, On The Third Extreme, on a song called "Celebration In The Four Towers". Again, Richards family allowed me to re-compose the part into my own work. I kept it subtle and is meant as a respectful ode to Richard and his incredible music. The part is used with permission from Richard's family.

This CD marks the last CD I'll compose using only Reason. Moving forward, I'll be using Presonus Studio One II as my main music writing environment, using various VST instruments and hardware synthesizers, including some classic analog monsters...
