Templates was an invited release on the Chelicerate netlabel (thanks Neil!)
The name and art of the EP is a nod to the fact that the many of the sounds were sampled from “The Transformation” EP, and imported into a Yamaha RS7000 for live sequencing and composition; a different workflow than my usual.
Using that workflow also meant that the “Template” tracks existed as live, free-form pieces long before being crystallised into the pieces presented here using Renoise and Reaper before being mastered by Neil LAR.
1) Template 1
A downtempo polyrhythmic exploration featuring an eastern sound palette.
2) Template 2
A thumping, slow gabba beat evolving into something rather different over time.
3) Template 3
An interpretation of high-speed, high density breakcore.
4) The Sevenths Song
