93EP was composed by the child in me. I was eight years old in 1993, the year I was given my first keyboard and also the year I was born into the life of a musician. Recently, I had all of our old family videos converted to digital, most of them from the year 1993. A treasure trove of samples lay waiting and I spent countless hours watching and re-watching those videos, cutting and editing the audio highlights. I spent the other half of my time in the studio composing music on an old keyboard I’d forgotten about: Generalmusic’s Equinox 61. Most of the sounds are cheesy and outdated, but they seemed to match perfectly with the home video samples. Thus, 93EP was conceived. Every song is a kind of vignette into my past, fuzzy and covered in dust. It’s my most personal album and possibly the most inaccessible for that reason.
