2002 – album as Benedict Roff-Marsh
I knew that this was to be the last record I ever made with hardware synthesizers involved. I could see the time had come to switch to a fully software studio. Part of this was the march of technology but a major change at this time was that I took up full time work, in the car industry of all things.
I had never seen myself selling anything but it was a family business and in reality I took to it rather well for some years. This took a lot of my writing time and attention away so the ability to save my whole session and open it later was a boon. To be honest I don’t see this album as a high point for me.
I tried very hard to make this album work but overall I made something that is mysterious but not fully pleasing.
Passover is a dark track and is typical of my earlier transition tracks.
Riding The Electric Wave shows a slightly electro vibe.
