Bing Satellites - The Midnight EP
Release date: 17 February 2014
Total running time: 20:26
The second in a series of EPs available on mini CD and download from Bing Satellites.
The Midnight EP features two tracks - 20 minutes of chilled experimental ambient soundscapes.
Towards the end of 2013, I lost interest in improvising (although not for long!) and looked for new ways of creating music.
The first track, Fifteen Below, uses the same generative processes I use to create music for my side projects The Lovely Moon and The Ambient Visitor but is less melodic. There are hints of notes but the whole thing is more atmospheric than musical. It is likely to be something I do more of in the future.
The music for the second track, Midnight, is directly derived from the first few lines of The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, using the same method I used for Metamorphosis of Narcissus from the EP In response to...Salvador Dalí. This is an interesting method which produces oddly timed and intriguing melodies that would not otherwise occur.
And yes, it is likely I will do more songs like this.
