about

This is my very first album! It is an exploration of the world of downtempo, including trip hop, lounge, mashups of organic & electronic sounds, progressive experimental pieces, and even a slow/chill techno tune.

In terms of technique/machines/software, all the music was produced in live in ableton live. What this means is that I recorded all the different parts in all the tracks by playing them out live. All the instruments are different (altered) presets that came with ableton that I play using a 61 key MIDI keyboard. I also play live drums using a padKontrol that controls Battery 3. Last but not least, there are numerous samples and effects that I layered in as well. Most of the tracks were recorded in one take after I recorded all the parts using an APC20. Occasionally I play new parts when recording the master take, such as the entire piano track in Upright Improvisation. I do some minimal editing after finishing said takes.

I hope you enjoy Journeys in Downtempo!
