My tenth release, entitled “Voice Ping Strum”, comes at the 40th anniversary of my first album, “Moving Pictures”, and the title is an anagram of that first one. It was done in my own studio on primarily Eurorack and Aries modular synths, with some sampled voice and piano. Most of the modular synth patches were done using Tall Dog (https://www.tall-dog.com) modules. Each side of the record is a single, uninterrupted suite.

In looking back at “Moving Pictures”, I decided to release this new one initially on vinyl only, as a limited edition. The sides were mastered and cut at Abbey Road by Sean Magee. The cover features artwork by German artist Mary Bauermeister. 

"Radio Omnibus" on CD and Digital now available. New reviews are in, read them here!

 "I find much contemporary and electronic music suffers from a coldness or soullessness; as a result, I have tried to make mine a more human music, a fusion of synthesized, instrumental, and natural sounds. When composing, I electronically orchestrate each piece into a soundscape. The music is not just a simple mixture, but a genuine synthesis of pan­-cultural musical styles. Above all, I want to make my music sing!" ­ - MW Gilbert
