The second in a series of EPs available on mini CD and download.
The Midnight EP features two track - 20 minutes of chilled experimental ambient soundscapes.
Towards the end of 2013, I lost interest in improvising (although not for long!) and looked for new ways of creating music.
The first track, Fifteen Below, uses the same generative processes I use to create music for my side projects
The Lovely Moon - www.thelovelymoon.com
and The Ambient Visitor - theambientvisitor.com
but is less melodic. There are hints of notes but the whole thing is more atmospheric than musical. It is likely to be something I do more of in the future.
The music for the second track, Midnight, is directly derived from the first few lines of The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, using the same method I used for Metamorphosis of Narcissus from the EP In response to...Salvador Dalí - inresponseto.bandcamp.com/album/in-response-to-salvador-dal
This is an interesting method which produces oddly timed and intriguing melodies that would not otherwise occur.
And yes, it is likely I will do more songs like this.
Expect another EP later in the year.
