A new EP for you to download for free!
So here’s the story. I wanted to create something that I wasn’t involved in. Everything I was doing was starting to sound the same, so I wanted to make some music that I could set off, and leave to run its own course and develop in its own ways. Something that was me, but something a bit more beyond what I normally do. The EP was originally going to be called ‘Selfless Songs’, due to this nature of me actually not being that involved in them at all. These six tracks were the simplest experiments in those forms, so simple as to almost resemble geometric shapes. I changed the name of the EP, in the end, to Geometry. I love their simplicity. Here’s a brief rundown of what happens in these tracks.
1. Assymetric – two tones that very slowly begin to differ from one another, creating a phase piece.
2. Fibonacci – notes dictacted in terms of distance by the first numbers in the fibonacci sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8)
3. e – the single notes are dictacted in pitch by numbers within the first 1,000,000 digits of the mathematical constant e, starting at the only point where 99999999 occurs. the chords are also defined in pitch and rhythm by groups of numbers from e. This was painstakingly boring to make. C’est la vie.
4. Sohcahtoa – a recurring pattern with a slightly offset delay that makes it build up into some sort of infernal steam machine.
5. Circumference – every note over three octaves played at once and left to dissolve and disintegrate.
6. Two Right Angles – the most involved of all the pieces, but still not with me playing any instruments per se; this is again created with various complex delays.
Listen to these pieces as just that – pieces. Little oddities of sound created through interesting ways. I like to think this is conceptual music at its most pure.
