2006 – album as Benedict Roff-Marsh
By this time I knew change was necessary in my life. Like most people I can’t say I had any real idea how to do any of it which is a frustration in itself.
Sidewinder In The Sand was a featured track on the site for the music software, Energy XT, I used at the time. I was happy with the exposure and proud to be a poster child. The other notable thing about this track is that it used a prototype of an instrument that would become “Cluster” but at the time was called “The Fundamentalist”. I had an email from Derek Riggs, of Iron Maiden artwork fame, asking if I’d develop an instrument for him. I offered this instrument as it seemed to me the name and concept were a perfect match. He didn’t take the offer and moved on. Derek made faceplate artwork for another synth of mine and I didn’t use his art either. Talk about ships in the night and all that.
Flowing Down Dreams is really classic Column 3-57 style composition around a simple motif.
Tag: Climb out of yourself and experience… wonder. Let things change.
