Sampler – Collonades

2010 – compilation of Column 3-57 Column 3-57 was my reinvention as a Proto-Techno artist. I combined elements of my Aeroplastic Voice and Benedict musics into one style that attempted to find my holy grail. In places I got much closer and there is much that I made that I am still proud of. Eventually…

Gods Of The Desert

1999 – album as Column 3-57 In many ways this should have been a released under my full name but I hadn’t quite gotten comfortable with just being me; old habits etc. Either way it was a major threshold/watershed album for me and it got me attention from people who would normally never listen to…

A Sea Called Solaris

1999 – data album as Column 3-57 The theme is taken from the novel Solaris by Stanisław Lem. Each of the pieces attempts to capture the emotions that are so well handled in the book (although not well in any of the English language film adaptations). Musically I composed this in the same manner as series:1:2 with most tracks made in…

Methods Of Transport

Flights Of Fancy

1999 – album as Column 3-57 I have always been rather pleased with this album as it was a threshold reached in getting closer to realizing my art the way I wanted it. The concept takes me back to the boyish interest in early aeroplanes, especially bi-planes. I used many of the things that fascinated me then as images…

Enemy/State

1998 – album as Column 3-57 Enemy/State is a funny album for me to have made at the time. No one wanted long pieces but that was exactly what I found myself writing. Initially I figured they would be left on the cutting floor but not to be and Enemy/State was released. That said I…

Afternoons In Foreign Climates

1998 – album as Column 3-57 I decided to think about this album the same way I did 1st Campaign and just do what I wanted to do. Clearly trying to skew my sound to suit others didn’t work for me. I guess it worked out because I got a few more fans with this…
