Tangent Precipitate

Tangent Precipitate

A solo experimental project, of usually improvised music of different forms. Tangent Precipitate journeyed through a broad range of music production techniques and genres. Generally albums had an emphasis on the capture of the raw and unpredictable creative moment. Tangent Precipitate has been retired, and further music is now produced as the Unknown Rockstar and as Tangent.

Outside the Inside

Outside the Inside

An album of keyboard/organ music. The first and third tracks are live recordings of a Hammond, and the second track is "...a live recording of keyboard through delay, played with a mind for interlocking/interweaving figures and exploring overtones - i find that listening to it intently sets me in powerful trance states."

Destroying His Name

Destroying His Name

Electronics and cutups. The title track uses Dada techniques of running two vocal tracks against each other.

Lines of Fire

Forceful electronic music, and brute-force sampling.

A variety of electronic and sample based music, from the rhythmically beautiful simplicity of Elevated States of Consciousness #001 to the more power electronic sample destroying sound of The Way.

Disturbed Bits 010

Disturbed Bits 010

Disturbed Bits is a series of long pieces of beautiful and intense power electronics. They investigate the ability of the juxtaposition of treated loops of different varieties to create resultant sounds that are different in character from the source material, perhaps "greater than the sum of its parts" as it were. The second set of five use pure granular superimposition to build tracks, with a different approach to most users of granular synthesis.
