I was delighted when Apta offered this EP for release on weareallghosts.co.uk... it's the kind of music we wish to promote by the kind of musician worthy of promotion. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
I have made this EP as an attempt to fuse together the contrasting styles of music I love. By encompassing the melodic sensibilities of instrumental post-rock with the slightly skittish rhythmic nature of IDM and electronic music, I am trying to refine my sound into a cohesive whole. This EP was based around the idea of a problem, and a resolution, The contrast of light and dark, and the transformation from one into the other.
Conceptually, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but as with most things, it is merely a step towards the eventual goal.
I'm eternally grateful for everyone out there who likes this, and as ever, to Thomas and weareallghosts.co.uk
for giving me the encouragement to carry on. Thanks to all of you who listen.
