Aerial And Trail released on a couple of hours ago. Still no cocaine and hookers for me.

Picture 1: Example of a hooker.

Picture 2: Hookers are social creatures


Still, on the plus side, I'm going to be staying in a hotel room in Protaras for the weekend and I intend to trash it.

"Aerial And Trail" is now available on

Holy shit!

Aerial And Trail on

Aerial And Trail on

That's right, people. For just $3.56US/£2.76UK you can download the EP encoded at 256kbps (you also have the option of buying single tracks at $0.89/£0.69 each). If this kind of quality seems like a blow to your audiophile sensibilities, just e-mail me and I'll send you a link to the wave files.

Actually, if you buy the thing in its digital form, e-mail me anyway. Not only will you get an e-mail of appreciation from me, the artist, but if I have any physical CDs left (I plan on ordering some from On Demand ) I'll ship one to you. I rule.


Aerial And Trail just got its first review at Jamendo and it calls my music intelligent and stylish. In your face, Scott Walker!

I loved the different sounds and feelings to this amazing,class done album, filled with charismatic, very interesting, intelligent,stylish, pop, acoustic, psychedelic, electronic, jazzy music. Filled with great vocals that really bring this music to life. And also love the sound effects as well.

Rated 4.5/5 stars


Holy Vocal Compressor, Batman!

Not specifically related to my music but anyway: this is a vocal compressor called Provoker and it's made by vescofx. The technical description is this: you're trying to record vocals in the most idiotic way you can think of (and, believe me, I have the market cornered in the sheer number of idiotic ways I have tried to record vocals with) and this effect processor looks at you defiantly and tells you in hushed tones "Go ahead, punk, make my day".
Fitting vocals in mixes just got a thousand times easier with this thing. The instructions are simple: push the big knob to make the vocals more present in the mix. According to the programmer, this effect compresses and adds some harmonic excitation/subtle distortion to the signal. Poppycock! (I had written "bullcrap" but I subsequently edited this post to change the word to "poppycock", such is my love for this exclamation). What I imagine happens when using it is Tinkerbell waving her wand over the selected track. I even think I saw her the other day, flying around in FL Studio. Or maybe it was that slutty FL Chan bitch.

Anyway, I love it and it just became indispensible to me. I'm surprised that the people at the KvR Audio forum still haven't made a 15-page praise post about this marvel.

So here are the tracks for "Aerial And Trail" - 4 tracks of jazzy, summery music, describing a summer day from morning until midnight. You can download the tracks individually here:

Track 1: Middle Of The Street

(vocals by Remco H.)

Track 2: Mark And April

(vocals by me, hidden so deep you're going to have to use CSI-level pseudo-equipment to detect them)

Track 3: Summerside

(vocals by Lisa Taylor)

Track 4: Moon O'Clock

(vocals by Dave O'Mahoney)

You can also get the whole thing at once at Rapidshare: Download
The EP has also been published on Jamendo.

If you are totally bonkers and you want to buy it (for real money) in the current economic climate, I'll post links to the online shops when it's available.

Special thanks to Francisco Blanco and Natasa Kleanthous for taking the picture and designing the cover respectively.

Also, nepotism.

Welcome to E.S.Blogntinuum!

This is a blog about my musical project "Electric Sound Continuum" so I thought that it'd be doubly fun to name it "Electric Sound Blogntinuum" because:

1. It's a pun (albeit a very bad one), also known as a "play on words" (1)
2. It's going to be fun watching people trying to pronounce it.

I considered writing a blog for quite some time but then decided against it because I am a man of few words. These words are usually a combination of "fuck", "you" and "asshole" so I never thought that you'd be interested in anything I'd have to say.

However, things have changed. Not only have I learned at least three new words recently ("nepotism", "nomenclature" and, perversely, "pencil") but my new EP, which I have been working on for at least one and a half years, is ready for release. It's called "Aerial And Trail" and it's going to be released (for free) on and as an archive file on Rapidshare and commercially through iTunes, and some other places you won't even know about.

Consider this post a launch party and get ready to download all the songs for free, unless you're one of those people that like paying for stuff they can get for free.
