This is a companion suite to Harmonics in The Silence. One of many to follow I suspect. I greatly enjoy this approach to production and haven't had this much fun with music in years. I think the problem in being such an awkward sod and doing really only what I enjoy, means suffering from being as poor as f*ck! I just have to go an do stuff that little bit differently and as a result my bank manager has never liked me :-D
It's just as well I've given up caring. Consequently... with these vast continuous suites, sprawling out over about 3.5hrs, although I've not quite succeeded in doing something you can't fit into a box, it's certainly harder to. Bandcamp won't allow track lengths in excess of 600MB so I am forced to split these suites into uploadable sections. Hence you get 3 with SaTG as with HiTS.
SaTG represents Winter to HiTS' Autumn/Fall I guess. I did most of this all throughout Christmas 2016 in fact, going into New Year 2017. Apart from being stuffed with food, half kaylied and trying to forget the recent US election (nothing works for this by the way), I carried on working from where HiTS left off. I'm not entirely sure what differences you will be able to spot in the time periods of the two works, but for me SaTG does seem the slightly darker one, but I could be wrong. I'm very much into this style of production now, so you can expect more like this. I have ideas about how to expand and elaborate even further on these kind of structures. Typical of me really - having stumbled across something fab, I've just got to start changing it to see it I can make it even more fab. It doesn't always work but when it does it makes you lot happy, then the dudes in white coats are happy to reinsert me back into my garage to concoct the next concoction*
*Which, having been duly concocted, is called Drone Alone. I added it as an extra cos you're so cool :-)
released March 1, 2017
You can blame me for the lot.
That having been said, this will have involved stuff such as Omnisphere, a few orchy sample libraries, a Prophet 12, a Roland JD800, a Roland V-Synth, Virus T2, Andromeda A6, Korg Radias & MS20. To what extent it involved them I didn't bother noticing, although whether this absolves them of guilt is another matter ;-)
Andy Pickford will return... with Vanguard III : Revenge of The Badgers.
No, really it won't be called Revenge of The Badgers, that's just silly ok.
