Composed on Logic using a Novation synthesizer, 2010


One of my earliest forays into electronic music, Angelscray is really an experiment in layered timbre. The bass tracks and subs are fairly still and static in terms of the ‘notes’, but within each track one will notice a wealth of variations as the timbre ebbs and flows, leading to a rippling effect. The slow randomness of the variations also ensures they don’t become rhythmical leading to a temporal distraction from the timbrous shifts. The treble voices are then built upon this base to provide new textures to balance against the timbrous flow. The overall effect is a blend between
relaxing and unsettling as the two elements at times interweave and at times collide.
