This track was created by experimenting with the combination of the cross rhythms of Gamelan with a straight "4 to the floor" rhythm track. It uses a wide range of Oriental bells and other struck instruments in repeating 3, 4 and 5 note patterns.

This was written as theme music for my first web site. I needed something that could sound reasonable on an FM sound card which is a bit of a tall order. It's sort of spacey and orchestral and choral at the same time.

This one started out life as the backing music for a animated video. Another combination of Javanese instruments and a Western rhythm track. It always seems a bit martial to me when I hear it.

Something very slight: very wallpaper. But it was fun writing it all the same.

An experiment with MIDI echoes lead to this. I still like the end though.

Santa is a short piece for Jazz Quartet written around Christmas (hence the name).

Mad House

This is an early experiment is using lots of filters and effects to create some more upbeat textures.

Another orchestral/choral sounding piece in ternary form. The middle section sounds like something people were doing in British films in the 50's.

Sometimes tracks take ages and other times they just happen. This is one of the latter. It was written over a single session and then subject to a couple of weeks of editing - like, no time at all.

This was originally a piano piece I wrote a college that I radically reworked and turned into this. It is mood music (that was the subject of the original exercise, I think). I hate the way university attempt to hold copyright on student's work. That has always struck me as wrong.

Pavane is definitely not a Pavane in any recognisable sense, but it did make me think of Ravel (very slightly). It's a six-part contrapuntal piece scored for very diverse electronic instruments. By the way, Ravel's isn't a pavane either, so it would seem fair.

This is one of the more experimental pieces on the album jointly written with my SO.

Like Pavane this started life as an exercise that got out of hand - a "motet without words".

It was one of those days when this was written. That says it all.
