22-Apr-07 : Bare-faced plug
This is a bare-faced plug for the new Ion album, Future Forever.
Ion is a new project that began life in the long, hot summer of 2006. I used a mixture of rackmounting and desktop ZEIT sequencers to compose the album and it was one of the exhilarating experiences of my life. I've never written so much music so quickly and ZEIT pretty much hit the spot every time.
The Ion project is a bit of a departure for me. Most people who have heard my approach to making music know that it's pretty much foot-on-the-floor, pedal-to-the-metal, full-on electronic power tracks with only an occasional nod towards slower, more romantic moods and feelings. Ion kind of cuts off at a tangent and is an attempt to get back to basics, to shift the emphasis away from keyboard chops and screaming solos and towards a more symphonic and, dare one perhaps suggest, a more mature and maybe even a more relaxed state of mind.
Future Forever is heavily sequencer-based, more so than any of my other albums. I wanted to really push myself and ZEIT and came away feeling rather smug and satisfied. Whilst I am kind of biased, I do think that ZEIT really is the bee's knees.
You can hear a collection of samples from Future Forever on the Ion homepage or from the Listen Whilst you Surf feature on the front page. The album is also available as a download from the on-line shop.

25-Feb-07 : New Sequencer Forum
The Yahoo Newsgroup, Infection Instruments will close at the end of March 2007. Problems with spam and on-going difficulties with Yahoo's mailing policy have meant that this forum has been little used for months. Consequently, we have decided to look for a better method of communicating with our customers.
An alternative forum, Step Sequencers has been set up on http://sequencers.informe.com. It's free to join and is rapidly developing into a well-used and very popular meeting place for anyone interested in sequencers and sequencing.
30-Jan-07 : Software revision 01-11BR released
