The Other Master- Devoted

 

 

Stem Tracks:

Piano: Kontakt Ragtime Piano using Vallotti temperament               Synth: Aethereal Psychic Modulation

This piece was one of my favorite to record of the whole album. I was sitting in bed improvising for hours playing endless takes, each one of of them good enough to make it on to the final record. I wanted this to be very loose in terms of time and have a kind of hesitant feel, tenuously reaching for the notes to resolve the tensions yet never fully grasping them properly. As much as I tried to filter out direct influences from other artists I was inspired in part by ‘Dream’ by John Cage on this piece, in particular the piano tone of Stephen Drury’s version.
