Relaxing and haunting in equal measure, Fractures feels like being taken on a drifting mystery tour through interlinked fragments of space and time, alternately revisiting nostalgic moments from the past and venturing into strange and ominous possible futures.
"This is a Music Therapy exercise employing an inward focus on the breath in combination with an engaged music listening technique, which can facilitate a deep and therapeutic music listening experience." Hayes Leslie
This album is a journey towards catharsis that begins by contemplating the morning star, to which the lark dedicates its song. The bird unfolds its wings. The warm rays of the sun sparkle an instant before the lark Vlies to a new beginning. The breeze caresses its feathers. It Vlies. The wind brings with it the whisper of ozone. Raindrops, one after another, fall on the puddles, that are waiting patiently. Fly high. The blue sky. The overhead sun shines. (OMEGA dB, March 2020).
We have all seen a ton of blogs covering topics on studio acoustics, proper room treatment, choosing the right monitors, and DAW software, but one thing we tend to overlook is how healthy or ergonomic our production space is. Having your gear properly elevated not only will help your neck and back from feeling like an 80 year-old but it also helps your wrists and music programming. This is especially true for live performers and finger drummers.
"I work nights and have been going to work early the last few months to make beats in my car. Don't know why. But a car is very peaceful and it was fullfilling when I'd complete one. For most the album I'd take the beat and record it with my digitech rp155. Instruments I used: LTD EC50 electric guitar, Po33. And an OP-1."
