Music


Listen..

‘Musically, ten:ten and it’s side projects came about after some kind souls suggested more people should hear the results of my years’ long hobby - dabbling with electronic music.  Much was unfinished, personal and by its nature, experimental.  Now finished tracks are emerging from the studio on a regular basis, supporting short films and as complete albums.  I hope it is as accessible as these kind souls still suggest!

Influences and inspiration come from many musical genres and include Tommy Steele, Brian Eno, Harold Budd, e.s.t., David Sylvian, Todd Rundgren, Arvo Part, Gyorgi Ligeti, Jimi Hendrix, David Toop, Bob Moog, Sparklehorse, Banco de Gaia, Bill Frisell, Mu-Ziq, Daniel Lanois, Boards of Canada, Robert Fripp, Cipher, FSOL, but especially Bill Nelson, without whom none of this would be even considered..

There are also numerous pieces devised specifically for film, as incidental music and backing tracks for live sound / video performance.  Some of these can be found on my Soundcloud and Vimeo pages.

Eleven recording collections, from ep’s to full albums have been created thus far, with a twelfth in production..’

Technically, music is composed and recorded to a Mac (or two) using variously, Logic Pro, Live, Soundtrack Pro and Garageband or recorded live to 2-track. Instrumentation includes ARP Solus, Nord Rack 2, Dave Smith Evolver, the null.modular (eurorack) synth, Soma Lyra-8 and Elektron Analog 4 and Keys.  Also, a variety of software synths, several guitars and a ridiculous number of guitar pedals, especially the Moogerfoogers.  Found sounds are found, recorded to a Zoom H6 and manipulated using DSP-Quattro.

Music production projects currently include 'ten:ten', a live electronic music persona, 'b.nine', an experimental distraction and 'lichen', an exciting ongoing collaboration with Peter Coyle.
