Jogging House - When - Ambient Album - Analog Four, Cocoquantus, Cassette

Dear Elektronauts,

I am super happy to share my new album ‘When’ with you, which this time is not released via my own label but with my friends from the wonderful Belgian label Dauw.

‘When’ is about time and how not to be bothered by it.

But more technically speaking, the album was made with the A4 and a Cocoquantus. Most tracks also had a Portastudio playing drones (previously recorded from the A4) and on two tunes I also used the Plumbutter from Ciat Lonbarde. All tracks were recorded straight to cassette with my trusted Marantz PMD430.

The album is available as of now digitally and on cassette.

As usual, I had the camera running while recording the music. So expect a some gear videos coming up. But on one track the camera didn’t work, so I took the chance and made the kind of video I used to do many years ago. This is it:

And here are the other videos:

Traverse

Stairs

Current

Fires

Rust

Wounds

There

I hope you enjoy the music.
Thank you!

Please tell me you’re working on an ambient sound pack for A4. :pray:

I am not, sorry. Not ruling it out for the future. But these packs take a huge amount of time (at least as long as an album) and I simply don’t have that right now.

I really appreciate you liking my sounds, it means a lot to me. Just please understand that I don’t want to promise anything that I cannot hold. Maybe it will happen at some point, maybe not. We’ll see.

Thank you all so much for your support. I am not the most active member on this forum but the love I’m getting from you guys is mindblowing.

The regular tapes are already sold out. I can’t believe it. Just incredible.

Listening to this now. It’s so beautiful.

It reminds me of childhood summers by the sea and those nights when the summer never set, the sky always a blue something.

Here is the video to the album’s opening track ‘Traverse’.

I sampled some sounds/loops of the A4 with the Fostex four-track recorder and the Ciat Lonbarde Cocoquantus. And then routed both back into the A4 to add FX. The A4 is also opening & closing the Coco’s inputs via CV.

Besides that, I uploaded an umastered version of this track some months ago. But I thought the final version would deserve to be here as well, so I can have all tracks in their final form together at some point.

Been driving around the coasts of northern ireland to this. Very enjoyable.

So nice. Almost has a Tangerine Dream feel to it which triggers mad nostalgia for me. Inspiring workflow as well.

Thank you, guys. Nostalgia and coast driving are both things I am very happy to give some background music to :slight_smile:

On Monday I can finally share the full album. Never released something via a pre-order before and I have to say the wait feels endless to me.
