Second Thought is quite a schizophrenic project with multiple personalities, and my best work has always come from reacting against my own music. After completing an album of strict compositions with distinct melodies and rhythms, I felt the need to take the opposite direction and work from a more electro-acoustic perspective, going back to audio editing. A number of sound sources are given the various ‘treatments’ and converted into entirely different, new pieces of music. This led to the finished EP, a series of ambient drone tracks which sound distinctly different from anything I’ve recorded previously.
