Deano releases experimental track on One Instrument

31 December 2018

Last release of the year comes by way of One Instrument, a wonderful project run by Grand River. The platform allows producers to compose tracks using only a single instrument source. For mine I used layered sequences from the Moog Mother-32 which has been spiced up with an Eventide Space.

Recorded live at TOY TOY at And Club on the 5th of October, this set felt like a breath of fresh air for me.

Hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed playing.
