2005 – album as Benedict Roff-Marsh
By this time I had started to develop some friendships with other musicians in online music forums. This helped me to feel that my music had greater relevance.
Hold Me Fast Tonight is typical of the 2 minute passing pieces I used to end up with one or two of on every album. They were not intended to be short but the ideas would never develop past the initial stage. Often I still really like them as they are little visions of something passing.
Morning Of Gold is very unusual for me as it is made of other people’s samples. Morning started as an online competition where a set of disparate samples were provided and the idea was to make a piece of music. Normally I don’t do these things but this time I did and I was really pleased with the results. I don’t recall winning but I know a few others were impressed with my track.
I feel that this album came out well overall.
