Interested in composers like Gabriel Yared and Johann Johannsson I set out to explore similar sonic palates and the Circuloid album came about. It hovered the line between soundscape and ambient with occasional use of speech effects and dissonant textures thrown in.
The tracks were mainly downtempo, some nodding to the darker tonality of drone (EX-Squared), others having a more pianistic air (Serenity Then). The brush-beat rhythm of Soweto Sunrise was a sole concession to tempo.
I was joined by three emergent talents: Jamie (guitar), Seonaid (violin) and Gill (percussion). Gill also engineered on a couple of the sessions.
