Finally started work on the new jido-genshi album, tentatively titled Shōuchū. (小宇宙 – meaning “Microcosm”)
Though still electronic in nature – and experimental as always – I tend to be using more guitars on this release than I normally do on my jido-genshi project; though I do use guitars quite a bit on some of my other music projects.
This particular track has sort of a “Boards Of Canada” feel to it, except, as I mentioned, it is mostly guitars (with a synth thrown in here and there.) A good pair of headphones is recommened while listening to this; to pick up the subtle low frequency bass and kick drum. I happen to use the Sony MDR-7506, my favorite pair of headphones for well over a decade now.
… and for a quick sneak-peek preview of one of my other projects; this is my fun and bouncy, neo-electro-synth-pop project StarDotStar and a track from the forthcoming album “Gridscape”:
