about

Another compilation of three EP's that were never really released.

Tracks 1-4: Droga EP (autumn 2005) - at this point I was proficient enough with Propellerhead Reason that I could satisfy all my creative urges using only that software, it felt like I'd found home. The track Droga is about feeling that subtractive synthesis is like a drug to me, no samples in that one, just a bunch of instances of Reason's SubTractor synthesizer. These tracks are the sound of many lonely nights during the most depressed period of my life.

Tracks 5-8: Josephine EP (winter 2006) - recorded using Audacity with the electric guitar as the primary instrument, tried to get a band like feel with a simple approach. The musical idea for the track Josephine came to me in an instant, I just played it on my guitar right after watching the movie Fame, which was a very inspiring experience (it reminded me of my time in music school, even though it wasn't as exciting or dramatic). Kinda rode that wave for all of the tracks, it wore out after a while.

Tracks 9-12: Osc EP (spring 2006) - these are mostly mellow, ambient tracks, somewhat transcendent at points, were part of a scrapped album. Everything done with Reason again, with some ReBirth on the title track for drums.
