about

It feels like bringing my children back home...

When I started Free Floating I hesitated to release my own music through the label. Part of me felt that it was presumptuous to put my music next to that of artists whose music I consider some of the best in the world. But time, and great encouragement from some of those same artists, has softened my views on this. As part of this year I call "In Hindsight", I felt it made sense to bring my own works into the fold of Free Floating and perhaps to new audiences. And so here I present my first two collections released under my performing moniker, "C.paradisi".

I titled the works 'sketches' as I felt that they were tentative explorations in exploring my abilities as an artist and experiments in how technologies could help me realize the sounds I was yearning to hear.

The first volume (tracks 1-5 here) were fairly traditional in form, my performing the basic parts on keyboard and then manipulating the results through looping, stretching, overdubbing, etc.

The second volume (tracks 6-13) represent a different technique altogether, using generative processes to create musical seeds that I would then watch blossom and develop. I went from being an architect--building tracks brick by brick--to working more like a gardener--preparing the soil, planting the seeds, and pruning the vines. This has become my preferred method of composition now, and one that I continue to enthusiastically explore.

Perhaps in the not so distant future Free Floating can then bring you Sketches from the Edge of Silence v. 3 and beyond....

In the meantime, I hope that you enjoy this music as much as I have enjoyed making it.

I want to thank all of the artists who inspire me with their music and their encouragement.
