a medley of two of the earliest tracks recorded for the "sky full of stars" album, from may, 2009, we present "from within" and "inhalation".
both of these pieces were recorded very quickly and very simply; relying almost solely on the beauty of the m-tron pro mellotron voices to achieve the required effect.
as with all the pieces on the record, it was almost like watching someone else play. the process was incredibly simple: select a voice, hit record, and play. there were no notes taken or plans made, each voice I selected suggesting the key, the mood, the sound of the piece - and the rest just appeared organically with little input from myself.
given that this record is the only record I've ever made that has no guitars on it, and that it was made with an instrument new to me, over time, it has become one of my favourite records to listen to, because I still wonder where these ethereal, fragile pieces of music came from. I will never know...but I am glad that they arrived. "from within"..."inhalation".
"from within" was recorded on may 16, 2009, and "inhalation" was recorded on may 30, 2009 - both were final mixed in 2011 during the preparation for the release of the album.
