Soft crackling, a snap, pop, a sudden roar, ever changing, recognizable yet never the same.
Flames who seem to have a life of its own, dancing to the sound of their passionate burning self.
Every piece is a place to be in, rising and descending, whispers, whistling heat.
Dance around the fire, or just stare at the flames. Take part in the ritual of the “Fire Ring”.
Instead of being beaten by a broken computer, I took that challenge to be creative and do it “the old way”.
All music is recorded in one take, full analog, and mixed on to tape, minor editing and mastering are done partly analog and digital.
The instruments I used for this recording: Ciat-lonbarde DIY instruments, Wurlitzer piano, Arp Axxe synthesizer, Guitar, and tape echo/loops.
Created from recordings of mini table top synths, modular synthesizer and field kit effects.
Modular synthesizer improvisations + reactive/generative audiovisual software arrangement/animation.
