Leak: The Complex
This record was inspired by the Wikileaks revelations and the political uproar that followed. It is not a political statement but rather musical reaction to the technology, the information and the political push back I witnessed. The sound is a mix of synth electronica with acoustic guitars and mandolins. The tracks flow between rock oriented vocal works, ambient style instrumental and even a bit of European style electronica. Recorded in my studio, The Barracks, I used some of the latest digital technology available to create the rhythms, synth textures and overall sound. The sound is original...a sound I have been refining since I purchased my first synthesizer at the age of 16. The mix of acoustic guitars, synthesizers and electronic drums has always intrigued me and reaches a high point with this recording. Listen through headphones for maximum audio experience.
