About Me

Propellerhead’s Reason provides an excellent platform to originate electronic compositions with its wide variety of instrumentation and effects, as well as very useful tools such as the Combinator.  Reason is a stereo system, but rewired into Cubase it can be used to form the basis of proper surround sound mastering.  I have been using Reason and Cubase in this way for some time now, incorporating samples from a variety of sources, outboard equipment such as the Dave Smith Tetra analogue synthesiser, a Roland digital synthesiser, guitars and effects and so on.

My music is very free-form with an emphasis on the ambient.  This sort of music works very well in a 5.1 surround format and is much enhanced by it.  Although ambient music as such seems to be rather ill-defined at times, I believe it is really about creating an atmosphere with sound that can control and influence one’s environment. I have however, from time to time, moved away from the confines of the terminology to produce something more obvious and noticeable.

Some compositions use a Tracker (Noatikl) which introduces an element of unpredictability to the composition and results in variability each time it is executed.  In more ‘live’ environments, a Tracker can be used to keep ambient compositions running indefinitely.

I currently use three surround formats (DTS, ac3 and wma) and I also mixdown to stereo and provide a number of formats, including the original wav, flac and various mp3 formats. On this site I provide the mp3 stereo mix at 128kbps and the wma surround mix. I can provide other formats on request.

Please feel free to listen and to download tracks and let me know if you like them.
