about

The Grid. A place where data and information is represented as a simulated reality. Each user has their own program and due to the users creating these programs they regard their users with deific status.
Under the influence of a new power-hungry artificial intelligence, the programs are being coerced into losing faith in the users.
It would take a new type of program to alter this balance of power and re-take the grid for the good of the programs and their users. With the aid of a mysterious entity claiming to be a user who has been put into the system, perhaps there is hope.
All will be settled on….The Grid.

The Grid is a concept album based on the 1982 film Tron.
Comprised of 17 instrumental tracks all designed with the aesthetics and feel of the original 1982 film. All the tracks are completely original, and written specifically for this project.

-----------------------------------------------

When I first saw the film Tron, I was completely mesmerised! It was as if watching the film had switched on a new part to my brain. The colours, the sounds, the landscapes; it all meshed together perfectly. Everything seemed possible in this computer based world.

The album as a whole is designed to work almost as an alternative soundtrack to the original film. With the names of each track providing some sort of ‘CLU’ to what part of the film it was made for.

-----------------------------------------------

I’ve made songs with a Tron based sound to them before for a compilation album (Flynn Pt I & II) and although the project went well I still felt I had more to explore. Thus the idea for a complete album of purely my own work was born.
Whilst making the album i tried to use a lot of modular based instruments when making this album, and all of these were vst based. This is of course a huge homage to Wendy Carlos who used primarily modular synths for the original score of Tron.

A huge thanks to everyone who has purchased, listened to, talked about and supported my work over the last year and a half. You all contribute to me being able to create my passion as a full time career.
