These three pieces were created between June 2021 and October 2023. See each track for specific details.

For the first time in 20+ years, after numerous false starts trialling numerous technologies, I have settled upon a process that feels right, and I am looking forward to hearing whatever it produces.

The new material marks a departure from the music produced many years ago, in that it will make no use of synthesizers or sequencers. Although electronic instruments are capable of producing increasingly interesting and wonderful sounds, I no longer have the patience for or interest in wading through dense menu structures or weaving patch cords in order to create a palette. I would rather find physically vibrating objects that have an immediately pleasing sonic and tactile quality, and use my time to enjoy the complex, random, richly animated sounds that they produce to create music.

The original intention was to release each new track as and when it was finished, and that the collection would expand over time. However, I have recently had my piano tuned to an older, unequal temperament, and I suspect that this tuning will inspire the exploration of a different, related path. Accordingly, this chapter can be closed.

What is the significance of the numbers ? In total, 37 tracks were published as a series of collections between 1994 and 2001 (not including three or four tracks featured on compilations). I have always struggled to 'name' the music, and so it seemed simplest just to continue the numbering sequence. You are free to imagine titles that makes sense, if necessary.

I have sat for quite some time at this resting place, on this stepping stone, enjoying the view as it unfolds. I hope that you find something within it.

Some would argue that the success, or otherwise, of a person's activities can be measured by their influence upon others.

Others would have you believe that the true measure of success is how happy your bank manager is to see you.

I am not convinced of the validity of either argument, am of the opinion that the outcome of any given pursuit is beside the point, the point being the pursuit itself.
