"The path of most resistance
This album was made using a bespoke system which has been in development for over a decade. Fragments of earlier versions of the system have been used on other recordings, but this project is the first occasion where all sounds have been generated and processed exclusively on instruments that I have programmed myself. The initial impetus to develop it came from a need to free myself from the constraints of using off-the-shelf gear and the culture of consumerism that engulfs electronic music making in particular. And I came to see that experimenting with the functionality of instruments helps to cultivate an experimental attitude to composing with them. Indeed, for me the process of designing instruments has become indissociable from composition. All of the recordings on this album were made in a single take with no edits, reflecting the system's orientation towards live performance. It is presented in defiance of the path of least resistance."
