Tintinnalogia

Released: August 2020

Equipment: Modal Argon 8 synthesizer, Arturia BeatStep Pro sequencer

Listen:

A shorter collection of tunes on the Argon 8, these were the tracks I'd completed when I bough a new instrument. My intention was to come back and complete the album but I never got around to it, choosing instead to release them as an 'EP' titled after the first track.

Tintinnalogia uses a single bell-like tone and was inspired by (regularly) hearing the local campanologists practicing. The name comes from a book on bell ringing.

Frameshift used a deliberately 'awkward' chord change to give a shifting, unsettled feel to the progression.

Automon is clangingly robotic, emphasised by the slow organ lines and hesitant piano.
