Video: In the studio

Postcards from the lab: how one guy’s music is evolving, one video update at a time…

Bit of backstory on this one: for the last couple of years, I’ve been writing music without my guitar. The two reasons behind this: to not lean on familiar, comfortable tools (and become entrenched in them to the point of boredom); and to force myself to explore new ones.

Blame Berlin perhaps, but this approach has taken the form of writing almost exclusively electronically (but with my voice from time to time as well). It took me years to find my style on guitar, and further years to develop it – so I accepted this electronic approach was gonna take some time, which is why I’ve been quiet on the releases front for a minute… and it’s only been in the last week or so that one or two of the new beats I’m working on has really cried out for any guitar at all, much less my own.

Here’s how it’s been up til now:
