Studio Notes

Discovery has several distinguishable parts that describe a story of a crew aboard a ship sailing the sea in search of a new life. This could be an allegory for the huge life changing events that happened between 1998 to 2004.

The escape from England UK to start a new life in the Netherlands, the first difficult year unemployed and somewhat home sick, the culture clash, the social isolation – all of this had an impact on my psyche.

The greatest thing happened in 2003 and that was marrying my fiancee of 5 years, it was a vividly memorable time especially since Ilona-Ruby had been walked down the aisle by her father to Kyria.

Discovery didn’t take very long to make, taking approximately a week to compose. No time was spent in post production- as I was not actually aware of how to do that on my clunky studio set-up. The recording had been done in one single take from the instruments playing in realtime from the computer sequencer.

I hope to be able to re-record Discovery at some point to be able to do it the justice it deserves, production-wise.
