PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND

Dream, Alchemy, Atmosphere, Images, Mood

PICK FIVE DECADES AND THE ONE SONG/ALBUM THAT DEFINES IT FOR YOU

1950s
Tom Dissevelt — Syncopation
A very remarkable piece of first melodic electronic music from 1958

1960s
Childe Harold  — Anne With Love
I just discovered this band recently and found out that even Walter (now Wendy) Carlos arranged this wonderful song in 1968. Unfortunately Childe Harold only released one 45.

1970s
Mort Garson – Plantasia
One of my favorite Moog records is Plantasia by Mort Garson. An album of soothing music to play to your plants. He’s a huge influence on me and how I approach music.

1980s
Severed Heads – Twenty Deadly Diseases
I remember listening to Severed Heads when I was 9 years old. A very underrated band from Down Under. It’s not the easiest music to listen to but it’s melodic if you listen carefully and more than just once. Tom Ellard is the founding member behind this group.

2000s
Air – How Does It Make You Feel?
AIR brought this beautiful french 70s pop back into this cold digital decade. 10 000 Hz Legend is my favorite AIR album.

PICK FIVE ARTISTS/LABELS/PEOPLE THAT GIVE YOU FAITH IN MUSIC

Sunstone Records
The Lords Of Thyme
Myself 😉
Of Course, My Wife
Audience

PICK FIVE ESSENTIAL PIECES OF MUSICAL EQUIPMENT/FX/EVERYDAY THINGS YOU NEED TO MAKE MUSIC

Guitar
Sitar
Mellotron
Bass
Creative Cookery (My Home Studio)
