Topography

Topography (2010)

Recorded over a few weeks at the end of 2010, this album was created entirely with just a Roland SH-2 monophonic analog synthesizer. In an effort to avoid bad habits of over-layering synth sounds, all the pieces were improvised with just the synthesizer, a loop pedal and delay pedal (with digital reverb added afterwards). With no computer editing and layering, a more spontaneous and organic sound is (hopefully) created, any unintended sounds becoming part of the loop and in turn taking the piece in new unplanned directions.
