‘Waveforms’ is now on Bandcamp

Waveforms album cover

Waveforms album coverHaving been unavailable for a while the Waveforms album of ambient instrumentals is now up on Bandcamp, with a couple of extra bonus tracks.

It’s priced at £4.00 rather than free. Why? Because I think music is worth something. It’s not much and you’re welcome to pay more if you want. The first track is a free download.

 

 

The sleevenotes say:

Each track is the first and only take of an improvisation using using Fernandes Sustainer guitar, Roland GR20 guitar synth, Zoom G2 guitar effects, Boss GigaDelay DD20 and Digitech JamMan looper.

All were recorded in February 2010 except Kyle, which was recorded late in 2007 for a friend whose son was missing. While intended as a message of hope, it now stands as a memorial.

The influence and inspiration of Robert Fripp and Brian Eno are obvious and the album is respectfully dedicated to them.

Waveforms in August

I'll be playing a short set of Waveforms at Sacred Space in St John's Church (corner of Princes St and Lothian Road) on three dates in August. Unlike previous years this'll be in daytime, which will lend a different dynamic.

I'll be playing on Wed 10th, Wed 17th and Wed 24th at 12:15.  There's no admission charge and people are free to come and go at any time during the performance.  The aim is just to create a space of stillness and contemplation. More info and similar performances.

Waveforms is the name I give to the music I make with a guitar, a guitar synthesiser and two loop pedals. It's 90% improvised, playing in the moment, and is like building up an abstract painting by layering colours on top of each other. I've said more about Waveforms here and you can hear some here  (click the album title).

Hope to see some friendly faces there!
