These are nearly all tracks that were written at the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 when I was in the process of moving house, which?meant I couldn’t have my studio set up. Instead I made these tracks using one or two synths and one drum?machine, recording into a laptop without a mixing desk. I guess this?is the way a lot of people make music but it’s new to me. Having the?restriction of only a few pieces of equipment on each track helped me?to focus on musical ideas. When I felt too restricted by the machines?in use, I would put a couple away and get a couple of different ones?out of storage. So the whole thing has a slightly different production vibe than some?of my stuff, and a slightly different thought process, but the?inspiration is the same: science fact and fiction mixed with the?emotions of daily life.
