Broader

This is the final track on the LP. It is also the third part of a triptych of pieces on the album that utilise the same set of musical phrases (The Island and Precinct being the other two). In this instance, these phrases form part of the chorus. Catford Gyrations · Broader (work in progress) … Continue reading Broader

Excalibur

It's now been over a year since I last posted an update on the LP. For some reason, I thought it might be a good idea to make the penultimate track on the album clock in at over six minutes, which probably hasn't helped matters. Catford Gyrations · Excalibur (work in progress) To be fair, … Continue reading Excalibur

The Dark Outside

I have recorded a new composition especially for The Dark Outside's 10th Anniversary Broadcast. The Dark Outside is a site specific 24 hour long radio station that plays "sounds and music that you have never heard before in a place where nobody might hear it". Normally, this happens to take place via an FM transmitter … Continue reading The Dark Outside

Remix for Love, Burns

I recently did a remix for Love, Burns which has just been released on Bandcamp. It's a shame (Catford Gyrations remix) is a reworking of a track from the album It Should Have Been Tomorrow, which came out earlier this year. If you've not heard the LP yet, I'd recommend giving it a listen. It's … Continue reading Remix for Love, Burns

Looping the loop

One of the worst things about home recording is that it's never that easy to gauge whether something you've recorded is actually any good, particularly when you are the only one who has ever listened to it, and have had to do so hundreds of times before you get round to finishing it. That is … Continue reading Looping the loop

Eros

Sometimes I get prompted to categorise my music, for which I don't always have an easy answer. If you really want to get your music heard nowadays, then it's pretty essential to pin yourself to a specific genre in order to feed the various algorithms that drive streaming platforms; and it also makes it easier … Continue reading Eros

Winslade

It feels good to finally get this one done - yet another case of me spending far too much time trying to get the arrangement right, but I do think that this has been worth the wait. Although, at the time of writing, I am presenting this as a rough mix, I shouldn't have to … Continue reading Winslade

Precinct

I applaud anyone who has managed to stay creative over the last 12 months, as this is something that certainly hasn't been easy for me. It is only recently that I have been able to resume work on the album -  mainly because I wanted to work on other things, but also because I felt … Continue reading Precinct

I’m Going Outside

I hope you are all keeping well. It probably goes without saying that making music hasn't been much of a priority over the last few months. However, I did manage to get round to recording this .... I'm Going Outside was written and recorded over the Easter weekend of 2020, in the midst of the … Continue reading I’m Going Outside
