Finally available as a digital download, after being on cassette only. Now released under my Alex Smoke moniker, as Alex Menzies will now just be used for commercial work.
It’s a combination of ideas from various cultures, from my work on music and health, and from experimenting with acoustic sources and physical modelling.
I think of it as night music.
Available in all the usual places but buying it directly from my Bandcamp is by far the most helpful to me personally.
The first official result of my last year’s music fellowship with the NHS, exploring the links between health and sound.
Of the many fascinating avenues that I explored, this album encapsulates ideas from just a few of them, and is particularly focussed on the use of music as a way of reducing stress.
I will be writing up a more complete overview of my year’s research at some point, and there will be a further album later in the year exploring other ideas from it.
