Description

An album of quiet piano-based ambient music from Bing Satellites. www.bingsatellites.comAlso available on CD from bingsatellites.bandcamp.comLive 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.

I heard "Motif 3" on Digitally Informed (Ambient) and loved the soundscape - so relaxing. After a 25 year break from composing this album has inspired me to record my old and new songs in an ambient style. Thanks Bing Satellites.
