This single was developed in collaboration with Basdriver - the skanvas project is something truly unique, and something inspiring. The idea of the 'sky canvas' is represented with some awesome and striking photography.
This track is based around the skanvas picture 'Electrifying Sunlight' - trying as best as I can to relay the image into sound form, to turn the sky canvas into a sky soundscape.
I initially intended to do five tracks, but life swiftly overtook me and I only managed to get this one done properly. I may come back to the other four :). This track was done entirely live using electronics and no computers, synthesizers or acoustic/electroacoustic instruments, just pedals and related gizmos, a mixer, an induction coil, some feedback and a cheap and nasty shortwave radio.
