Recorded in County Durham, with sounds captured in the surrounding area becoming part of the music. Rain is transformed into white noise; at one point a melody line mimicked by a starling - all the result of endless processes and cycles. The techniques used in creating ‘Embers’ mirror allegorically these processes.

Arpeggios self-evolve and are interconnected, randomness introduced utilising two similar pairs of synthesizers so that their cycles are ever changing and naturally evolving.

‘Embers’ start and ending appear the same, allowing the album to cycle endlessly - the 180g double vinyl edition has been created so that the listener can mix the album without breaks across two turntables.

The album artwork itself is an interpretive score of the music, using another media to view the world from a different angle.
