  • The Endless Now - Music for Stagnation (an album created entirely with bass guitar)

    Hello!

    Couple of weeks ago I released an album, which is created entirely with bass guitar. Every sound that you hear is from my bass and it is mostly played live, although I had to compromise in some degree to maintain the sound quality. I hope you enjoy it!

    That's really lovely, the kind of ambient that stops you in your tracks, almost impossible to just let fade into the background.

    I'd be interested in your methods, would never guess a bass was the primary source for these sounds.
    Latest release: never to be repeated

      Thank you for your comments!

      At the beginning I wanted to make a pedal set up that would allow me to actually play my instrument as freely as possible. I did set up a quite elaborate pedal chain and put a lot of effort to conceive it properly. I had to overcome some obvious restrictions of my instrument, such as low and limited register. I also used reverb and delay after the loopers to make it sound more organic. After I got three separate stereo channels out of my set up, I could start improvising and trying out different pre-written musical ideas. A lot of them had to be discarded, because of the restrictions I had, but on the other hand the effects and the process itself guided my progress and the ending results were something that I couldn't completely imagine at the beginning. I was happy to be able to play my music live, because that was something I had always been doing. I've always been very reluctant sitting in front of the computer instead of actually playing...
