Column 3-57

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… Continue reading Sampler – Collonades

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… Continue reading Gods Of The Desert

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… Continue reading A Sea Called Solaris

Methods Of Transport

1999 - album as Column 3-57 I started this project with the idea of it being a covers album. Of course part way into Icehouse's "Trojan Blue" I had to admit that not only was I not quite the musician I needed to be, but my 1 semitone vocal range wasn't going to do justice to anyone.… Continue reading 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… Continue reading Flights Of Fancy

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… Continue reading Enemy/State

Operating Electronic Machinery

1998 - album as Column 3-57 SpaceShip didn't take off like I hoped. Matter of fact no one seemed interested at all. The world was still (as it seems now) in the grip of doof fever. These pieces went back to a poppier approach with mostly short pieces all about computers. The album starts with… Continue reading Operating Electronic Machinery
