My way of working is completely organic, and as a noise artist whose work is 99% beatless, my ideas often come from images, film, dialogue, conversations. it usually stems from one idea that I feel like I can explore. However, Part III originally came from a 30 second sample and a mistake made in delay feedback. I don't often use audio samples, but using one 30 sec sample to create a 4-minute unrecognizable track with rhythm was a process that came naturally and I didn't need to think about and I'm an obsessive delay fan!
I love pushing equipment, software, sound, anything against its manufactured purpose. I'll spend hours creating sounds through different methods before I record, I will often take, let's say" the hook" in a track away, change paths creating more discordant tones that rub listeners the wrong way. Not a purposeful move but this is where EM lies. I tend to create moments rather than a structured piece. In my studio I used Logic and a mixture of plugins, field recordings and a heavily edited 30 sec sample to create ascension in thirds – Part III. In the last year I have moved from using Strymon effect pedals connected to my DAW as my main delay source to Valhalla plugins which are amazing and have now become an integral part of my process as they are so versatile and I used the plugin to create the "distant rhythm" in the track.
