Andrulian This is an excellent album, there’s a great attention to detail with some very well crafted sounds which are layered really well. There’s great percussive sounds, some of which sound like struck items and great synth sounds too including great arps which create intricate rhythms. Some of the songs have an ambience which contrasts really well against synth sounds or more metallic sounding percussion. Favorite track: Melancholy of Nostalgia.

about

In this second album I depart somewhat, but not entirely, from my work with mechanical sounds that was so prevalent in my first album The Laundry Tapes (released on Mobius Spin, 5 February 2015, mobiusspin.com/releases-001-020/mbsspn017). I have focused more on how to use a new DAW (Bitwig Studio) to develop pieces that fall in the following categories: 1. Working with scenes, samples, and loops; 2. Using instrument and FX containers and chains; 3. Using instrument and FX layers. The first category is a continuation of my work in The Laundry Tapes, but the second and third categories opened up new avenues for me. I am sharing this journey with you in the form of this album.
Thank you for any donations you may give to this project. All of the donations (100%) will be forwarded to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank (www.rifoodbank.org) supporting their work in providing food to people in need, especially children.
The first 200 who donate any money will receive a code for a bonus EP.

The foundation for most of the 11 tracks lies in my explorations of the Bitwig Studio DAW (www.bitwig.com/en/bitwig-studio.html). All tracks were mastered using Ozone6 from iZotope. Deep-felt thanks go out to @3dtorus (owner of www.mobiusspin.com), who encouraged and supported me to engage in this journey, and who was so kind to give me pre-publication feedback that helped me fix a few important aspects. I also received such helpful feedback and support from Jeffrey Kirn (@isotherme), Kim Rueger (@Bellyfullofstar), and Sarah Schonert (@sarahschonert). I feel a great debt of gratitude.

In the track Ode to Alice Herz-Sommer, I used small segments (under Fair Use) of a February 24, 2014, broadcast of All Things Considered from NPR. The source can be found here: www.npr.org/2014/02/24/282123643/alice-herz-sommer-pianist-and-holocaust-survivor-dies-at-110
