Where Dark Forces Meet.
This was my first synthesiser electronic music album. it was released on the “Flowmotion” label in 1982. It’s a collection of tracks inspired by memories of experiences of living in cheap rented one roomed accommodation often in run-down areas of town or crashing out on peoples floors. I recalled simple things like drifting off into imaginary worlds while watching an astronomy programme on TV, gazing into the fireplace and seeing strange things, staring out of the window on a rainy day or just visiting friends and playing music together, looking round second hand record shops. I just wanted to capture that feeling.
By 1980 I had settled into my first bought house and while very hard up but enjoying the luxury of central heating I started to build my first mainly analogue synthesiser studio in a tiny back bedroom. After the period with the duo “Out of Control”, which was born there, and many many hours of subsequent hard work this, my first solo album, was completed.

About the Music...
Technical stuff...
In making this album I used my two home-built analogue  modular synthesisers together with the first micro-processor controlled sequencer and electronic percussion unit I designed and built. These are all described in the “synthesiser adventures” section of this site.  Extra sounds came from a string synthesiser I built from a magazine article, my electric guitar and my voice. For recording I’d designed and built a four track 1/4” tape machine based on an old tape deck. I was also luckily given a couple of extra old stereo 1/4” machines to fly effects into the mix described in the “recording adventures” section. At the time my little studio mixer was only six channel, which made life a little difficult but I also used mixers on all the synthesisers too.

The production CD master is a direct copy from the analogue master tape to a stand alone CD recorder via a very high quality analogue to digital convertor system. No “re-mastering” has been done.  This is as near as I can get to that  original vintage analogue sound on the CD medium. I’ve tried to preserve the character of the sound of the period. No Dolby noise reduction was used on the early master tapes. The album was more recently simply transferred straight to a digital workstation for safety and the MP3 and FLAC files copied from that.
