Decided to play around a bit with the individual files for "Quiet Table" so ran one part through a wah-wah effect and the other was given some reverse reverb; the whole thing was stretched three times. Also submitted to Sound-In "Intuitive Determinacy…

Unaltered recordings of a toy piano (the "quiet" bit), and a metal frame that appears to have been for the top of a patio table. Ok, maybe not *entirely* unaltered, as I did change the tempo of the piano track to make it closer in length to the…

I wrote this track with the intention of writing something for an LP, but it ended up not sounding anything like the vibe I had in mind for the album. Somehow it turned into a dark-trance song, who knew?

I tried to capture the spirit of Massive Attack's Mezzanine and infuse it with the works of Akira Yamaoka in the silent hill soundtracks. This was the result.

More Roland SE-02 through EHX Stereo Memory Man. Entirely by chance knob-twiddling, this lovely sound emerged that often resembles bells, and so I titled it aftera method of playing popular in English churches - though it probably doesn't resemble…

this is fun sounds --- I get these sounds from digital delay settings I would tweak and the various ends of the time values for the delays -- so intense -- I usually do these types of delays with the feedback thru my vocoder inputs on the supernova --- this stuff is just great--- :)

I work strictly in improvisation, on whatever sound-making device finds its way into my hands. Anything tuneful is usually accidental, though I do on rare occasions manage limited success when trying it deliberately. Electronics are a frequent component but there is also a fair amount of strictly acoustic material. For purchasing soundworks, some of which have appeared here, go to: https://jamesbailey1.bandcamp.com/
