Steps is a collection of songs that were pieced together with field recordings and samples. The recording process involved processing the samples and then layering and looping them during improv sessions. This left me with a few different versions of each song. Hanging_deadspace and Hanging_floating were both recorded using the same samples and the same processing. Presented are the pieces that I felt had the best sonic qualities and landscapes.
This release has been about learning to process samples, and how to explore darker atmospheres. Though more importantly, it was about exploring sound from an abstract mindset, and less about creating a song.
