I’ll keep this short for once: please head to the BIO for a double treat 😃 First of all I hope you will enjoy the labour of love that was this mini-documentary by @luistorroja on the making of my last album. I call it “documentary”, but it really is a hybrid visual object due to the poetic nature of Luis Torroja’s outlook on my creative process and his own artistic sensibilities (that ending… A love letter to machines ❤️❤️❤️)
Heartfelt thanks to Luis for pouring so much energy, time and care into this project, in circumstances that were less than ideal: we had extremely restricted practical resources (the crew was him and me, basically!) and the tiny nature of my studio (7 sq m2 – 75 sq ft) coupled with Covid did not make our task easier, but I really hope you will get a sense of where and how this album was made, and feel the magic of the machines which I felt became my bandmates for this project.
You can watch the documentary directly on Moog’s Youtube or on the Moog page. where you will also find more material: an interview, a patch sheet and extra video filmed by yours truly showing the setup for album closer “Hidden in the Current”.
A huge thank you to @moogsynthesizers 🙏🙏🙏 for making this documentary available to a wider audience, for their 2017 invitation to play at the Moog Soundlab – which remains a highlight of my career and became the A Flame Variations EP – and for their generous gear donation which has contributed to a considerable broadening of my sonic horizons on this last album.
Beautiful Elka Drummer One light @soundgasltd ❤️
AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
