The Neverending

Shadows and clouds drift across the sky.
The wind blowing through the trees.

An expansive minimalist ambient drone focusing on just one note and its usually hidden harmonics.

Bring On The Night

A very chilled, minimalist ambient drone focusing on just one note and its usually hidden harmonics.

The music on this album is performed and recorded in one take.

I played one single note on three synths and ebowed guitar. The ebow picks out harmonics naturally and I experiment with this playing along the neck and at different distances from the string.

The synth sounds I created for this have similar qualities. While only one note is played, they have a unique colour to them which can be modified slightly as I play.

The Moon and the Stars

A peaceful and atmospheric ambient drone focusing on just one note and its usually hidden harmonics.

The music comes from three sources, an ebowed guitar, a Roland SH-32 synth and Novation KS rack synth, each playing the same note.
The ebow picks out natural harmonics in the strings. The sounds used on the synths had a similar quality.
The three sounds layered together interact and bring out the harmonics of that note.
