The Crossing 06:28


This is my first ambient release, and at just over 30 minutes in length, could be classified as an EP, although I prefer to call it a mini-album.

All tracks were recorded and mastered between April 2017 and February 2020, with none of my usual remix, remix shenanigans. Either I'm becoming lazy, or I'm getting them right first time. I suspect the truth lies somewhere between.

I wasn't working on these tracks with a plan to release them as an album. This album seemed to materialise about 4 weeks ago, when I realised that they formed a coherent sequence of tracks, musically and conceptually.

Prog-Rock formed a significant part of my musical upbringing. I hope that these mainly electronic morsels manage to convey part of that heritage, although genres can be hard to pin down with any degree of certainty.
