about

I used to work 175km West of the Shetland Islands, offshore in the Schiehallion field, on a semi submersible drilling oil rig, anchored to the North Atlantic Ocean floor. In winter, before a storm approached, the helicopters are cancelled and all the containers are strapped to the deck. The sea is calm. Within 24 hours, wind speeds are 160 mph. The waves are 20m high. The emergency supply boat in the distance is barely visible, as it disappears behind each wave. The howling noise, is just like the movies. The rig rolls, as each wave hits. At night, it slowly rocks me to sleep from my cabin bunk. Sometimes the roll takes so long, I wonder if it will roll back or continue and roll over.

West Of Shetland was made with a portable monome / whimsical raps, hybrid analog / digital eurorack modular system. This is the same system I used to record my previous album Kubota. All tracks recorded live in 1 take to a stereo track. There is no multi tracking, overdubbing or post edits. Recorded during the monsoon in North East Thailand 2020.

The digital release includes an exclusive additional track Softcut. Video for this track can be seen here :
