Hands of Ruin

2008-03-21 12:36:53 GMT/BST

Last year I decided that I should get back into music again. Hands of Ruin is the result.

I'm sticking with the dark, atmospheric electronica aesthetic that you might have heard with my earlier work. My tools are a bit different though. I'm now working almost exclusively with ZynAddSubFX and Seq24. I'm trying not to spend too much time experimenting with new bits of software. Both of those tools are nice because they're very simple and it's easy to get musical results out of them. Unlike Csound, you don't have to spend weeks building your instruments before you can create some sound.

I'm also trying to sell my music now, which is an interesting departure for me. Too much time spent reading about entrepreneurialism, probably.
