Hello women and men,
Inspired by Parallel World's
threads, I thought it'd be good to let the forum humans know about my own non-Hypnos projects. I didn't do it when Cognessence
came out, but now that the second Slowfoot album, Inscape
, is out, and because its supporting E.P, Accurate Spit Boy
spurted out into the world a few days ago, I figured it'd be good time to do a thread on them.
They are all the result of months of obsessive playing, recording, programming, mangling, etc. etc. drawn from anywhere in the environment, from any piece of software or hardware... Musical inspiration includes lots of 20th/21st century classical music, the sort of ambient music we discuss here, Hungarian folk (though that element is often buried) and the more experimental ends of electronic music, as well as dub, grime, dubstep, detroit techno, dancehall, "idm", etc.
I reckon the two albums (rather than the E.Ps) would be of more interest to Hypnos folk - the E.Ps are on vinyl and attempt to aim for the dancefloor (I'm not quite sure how successful they actually are at that, but some creatures will dance to anything.

Thanks to any of you who have already heard any of my music and shared feedback. I tend to get very self-critical about it, especially once it's out, so that's a real encouragement.
