What do we do when left alone? Some people do nothing at all and quickly begin to feel bored. Others meditate, do needlework or the simply go crazy. And then there are people who can only be creative when they are alone.
When I'm left alone, I simply make music and I start to transform feelings into patterns. Electronic music patterns. And that's what my latest album titled "When Left Alone" is all about.
As the album opens with "A Hot Kinda Musician" you get a haunting feeling come over you. There are multiple moments similar to this on the album.
Then all of a sudden the minimal dub beats bring you out of that zone and give the listener an almost different direction to follow. A perfect example is the closing track "Worthwhile". It gets a bit more upbeat but still has that dark feeling.
The sounds and textures throughout the album are very pleasing to the ears. You will find yourself discovering more hidden sounds every time you hear it. Sit back and chill with the headphones on while enjoying this album.
"When Left Alone" is the first album I release with Shady Ridge Records, an electronic and ambient record label based in Hutchinson, Minnesota. It was created entirely with the Elektron Digitakt and it's available now on Bandcamp, Streaming Services and on my Website as well.
I will perform some of the album tracks during a live performance on Feb 20 at 7pm CET on my YouTube Channel.
