about

The Twilight Sessions are a series of albums of live improvised ambient music based around long, slowly decaying loops.

In 2010, I was still trying to find my musical voice ans still trying to sound like other people.
One day I set up a looping system - something new to me - and started improvising. The results astounded me! The loops I use are quite long - often around 80 or 90 seconds. With loops as long as these, I can never know exactly what I'm adding to. This means I really have to listen and let the music guide me. With my ego or any notion of trying to sound like someone else out of the way, I am able to express myself through my music.

Because these loops are long, because I improvise and record this music live and because these sessions last as long as they last, it makes it easy for me to create a lot of music in a short space of time.

When you listen to a track on a Twilight Sessions album, you are listening to something that was created in real time.

Creating music this way changed everything for me and is part of the reason I have such a vast discography. Obviously that and the fact that I work at this night and day!

This album is just a taste of the twenty Twilight Sessions albums so far. They have been a joy to create and to revisit for this compilation. I hope you enjoy this little taster and want to explore more.
