about

These are seven - of many - home studio recordings that I made between 2006 and 2008.

Along with more fully developed 'conventional' songs - such as Schoolyard Ghosts (which evolved into Mixtaped), Beautiful Songs You Should Know and Song Of The Surf - the demos were presented to Steven Wilson with a view to being used on what became No-Man's Schoolyard Ghosts album.

Using GarageBand, I manipulated samples and notes, played keyboards (all hail the M-Tron!) and guitar, and used multiple treatments in ways that were new for me. The music was written purely for the sake of it with little regard for genre, purpose or context.

Four of the demos (tracks 2,4, 6 and 7) are on the 2014 Kscope label CD reissue of Schoolyard Ghosts: burningshed.com/store/noman/NoMan-Schoolyard_Ghosts-cd?filter_name=schoolyard%20&filter_category_id=79&filter_sub_category=true
