EMERGENCY ALERT! ZoiD album #3 inbound
This is not a drill.
Really, it’s not.
THIS IS HAPPENING!
And you, oh loyal ZoiDlist Member, independent music supporter, electronic-music-listening-human, get to hear the Nebulous Concrete Album Teaser before anyone else.
It’s on a private Soundcloud link.
Here it is.
These tracks were made between September 2017 and January 2018. I estimate around 100 hours of work went into these 8 tracks. That doesn’t include the hours done by the contributors, Sean MacErlaine (who recorded the clarinets on “Hyperion Drive”) and Tenali Hrenak (who recorded the field recording used on Iapetus Grove).
They are, I think, the best musics I have made so far, since the first track I made in 1996. That is because I know what music I want to make much more clearly now, and that is:
- musical compositions with memorable melodies and ear-twitching harmonies made of sounds that happen to be mostly electronic
- tracks that are for listening to and/or dancing to alone on the beach or in your room
- instrumental songs with techno beats
- songs that might be playing in a crystal house on Mimas, 9th moon of Saturn, in the year 2087
If that sounds like your cup of tea then check out the album teaser: https://soundcloud.com/z_o_i_d/nebulous-concrete-album-teaser/s-Lt8Aw

Till then, keep well, drop me a line to say hi 🙂
