New EP Jacob’s Ladder out 1st December

It’s been some time since my last post, what was going to be a brief hiatus from my track of the week segment has turned into several years. As life responsibilities have gotten more complicated my free time has greatly reduced and I needed to decide what I wanted to prioritise.

The priority is my own music, and the first result of this work is this new EP Jacob’s Ladder.

The EP is focused on a collection of breakbeats I made and blends them with synthesis and Brass instrumentation to create something more rhythm focused and will be out on the 1st of December. On Bandcamp and for the first time streaming through all available music streaming services. I’ll post more as it comes up to its release on social media so follow my Instagram and Tiktok for more:

ConfettiTsunami – Made In Japan

My first full length album is finally here! Made In Japan has taken several years of hard work and is available on Bandcamp now:

Album: Autumn

I’ve been a bit slack posting up on bandcamp the last 13 Tracks from my track a week project. But its finally up to listen to and download.

This exercise in creating a track a week for a year has really brushed up my understanding of workflow and given me an idea of the sounds I would like to take forward into the future. In 2015 I aim to be making stuff with a more polished sound and there will be some news coming in the next few months regarding some new material.

Thanks to the website and its users for being supportive and complimentary, to Adam Wheeldon and John George for helping me on a couple of the tracks and finally to the people who have listened to it on bandcamp and emailed me.

Weekly Beats 52: Winding Down

It’s over, My new years resolution 2014 was to crate a track a week for the whole year and 52 weeks later its finished!

I decided to bring 2014 to a close with a bit of a pallet cleanser. I used piano recordings of chords and stretched and played with the samples to get interesting ambient pad effects. I then used a Minibrute which I got as a Christmas present to add extra sequenced rhythms.

This year has been really fun for me to get to grips with my OP1 and learn ways to work quickly with Ableton live. Next year I’m going to spend more time focusing on tracks and try to put together an album of stuff with more detail that focuses on the sound and ideas I have developed over this year:
