patterns in the noise

Inspired by Voltaire’s interstellar voyage, Patterns in the noise is an exploration into the human mind. A 30 minute journey through self categorisation, this sonic artwork bridges the space between electronic and acoustic music.

Is no one inspired by our present picture of the universe? This value of science remains unsung by singers, you are reduced to hearing not a song or poem, but an evening lecture about it. This is not yet a scientific age. – Richard Feynman

audio production

As a producer, Tim is able to undertake a number of roles: musical composition, pre production, performance, sound design, tracking, editing, mixing and project management.

Composition and Pre Production

  • beat making
  • missing parts
  • pre production is important to get right since you cant change many aspects of the song later on!

Arguably the most important part of music production, in this stage I like to focus on song itself. Arrangement, instrumentation, tempo, key, melody, harmony and rhythmic elements are all looked at, discussed and refined to create a cohesive track that flows.

I also help to complete unfinished songs. Writing additional parts, new section and, horn/string arrangements at this stage of production helps direct the following stages and saves time during tracking. If session musicians are being used, I also prepare sheet music to save valuable studio time.

Performance and Sound Design

Tim believes that character is usually more important than what is technically correct.

 

Sound design is crucial element for a song to stand out. With a vast knowledge of synthesis, sampling, pedals, studio effects and audio manipulation techniques, Tim is able to create almost any sound from any other sound.
