about

This is my debut solo album ‘The World Will End With a Bang’. I use a bass guitar, a small wooden ‘stomp-box’ and a laptop to record live-layered pieces and improvisations.

The concept album follows the story of an unnamed journeyman in an imagined surreal nightmarish adventure, akin to ‘a cross between Dante’s Inferno, Twin Peaks and Watership Down’. The story itself is an unwritten one; it exists only through the titles of each piece, which were written prior to the creation of the music in most cases, and the expression of the music itself. Each track is a chapter in that story.

Most of the pieces are live recorded takes, using pedals and a laptop to create different looping layers of music and trigger electronic effects.
