Mobile is a collection of tracks recorded using the iPhone 4S. My original decision to record this material on a smart phone was based more on necessity than novelty. My spare time has become very limited, leaving little time to experiment and explore new ideas.
Luckily mobile phone technology has become much more useable, accessible and powerful. In fact there's more computational power in my current mobile phone than there was in my entire recording studio over 10 years ago.
I started to wonder if it was possible to take advantage of this. I began thinking about the time we spend standing in queues or simply waiting for things to happen. Could I make use of this time? So I bought some music apps and decided to find out.
At first it was a complete disaster. However once I'd figured out how to install my own sample library, record some instruments and get the most out of the apps, everything started to come together.
Since I started upon this venture I've produced a variety of tunes with varying degrees of success. However I feel these tracks stand out from the rest and deserve a wider audience.
