Since late 2020, I’ve been working on the debut album by Alex Jemmet AKA Indigent Ghoul, producing songs one by one and starting from his own Ableton Live projects.
We’ve been exploring synths, drum programming, sound-design and atmospherics as well as capturing great vocal and instrumental performances in my studio.
With influences ranging from Ariel Pink to Radiohead to Lana Del Ray and some extremely infectious and inventive songs, it’s been a really fun journey so far (just finishing the sixth track) and I’ve learned tons along the way!
I’m so excited about how it sounds so far that I’ve spliced together some of my favourite pieces so you get a taste.
The process has involved a lot of manipulation of sounds, re-sampling, slicing, experimenting with effects and making the music sonically adventurous. I have also used session drummer Thom Mills, violinist Becka Wright and bassist Steven Oates to add additional human layers on top of the programmed, electronic elements.
