about

In October 2010, I began what was to become a wonderful 2 year experience. I had for many years wanted to do a project about Berlin. From early Berlin School through to Techno, Berlin is the spiritual home of electronic music for me.

I started visiting the city and carrying out field recordings in a number of locations. Along the way, I began to assemble some sketches as to how the music might sound. Each visit to Berlin allowed me to carry out new recordings and take time to shape the evolving music.

In June 2011, I took these sketches and initial field recordings to France where the material was performed for the first time. Between then and August 2012 I performed variations on the music at 20 different events around Europe. Each time I introduced new recordings and changed the music subtly through improvisation.

In October 2012, I gathered together recordings of the concerts I had enjoyed doing most and these were then edited into their individual tracks.

Once I had the 9 final tracks identified I just took all the concert variations and wove them in and out of each other. Simple. By late January 2013 I had arrived at finished mixes. These were then sent to Colin Bennun for mastering at @ The Stooodio, Bristol, UK - www.mastering.oood.net who did some wonderful magic in gently teasing it all into what you now have.

Quite a few people helped to make this project happen:
a big special shout out to the Dublin Techno Family
in H2Oford to Keith, Natalie, Dave
to the folks who provided feedback on the mixes
to the people of Berlin for their many welcomes
to audiences in Europe who enjoyed the concerts
to all who have supported my music over the years
to you for listening
Love & Light
