darklight is an album of contrast. From the dark atmosphere and sequences of the track dark, to the wide soundscapes of the track light.
For me, this album took the longest to finish as I wanted it to sound exactly as I had in mind, and for this I had also built a complete analog modular synthesizer that I could use to create all the sounds and timbres that make up darklight.
darklight ventures further into the realm of analog-driven electronic music by having the modular synthesizer take charge of more than half of the sound and all sounds are original patches. Very few digital and software instruments took part in this album.
