Live music is a wonderful thing!
During February and March 2013, I started rehearsing for my first public concert as Bing Satellites.
I've performed live before but always as part of a band or what-have-you, or in the comfort of my home studio with lots of synths, guitars and other instruments close at hand.
However, for these rehearsals, I tried to have as minimal a set up as possible -
small enough to transport to gig venues but with the flexibility to produce a wide range of sounds.
In the end, I settled on laptop and mixer, a small keyboard and my smallest guitar and I set these up in my living room, separate from the rest of my musical equipment.
The result was an inspired and productive few weeks. I improvised and recorded hours and hours of new music, some of which you can hear on this and other albums.
Although, all of this music was improvised, it appears I unknowingly started a few pieces with the same three notes (or variations on those three notes).
I collected these pieces together on this album. Motif seemed a fitting name.
