Mr Kit's 40 40

by Mr Kit



The History:

About 4 years ago, when I was living in Bristol, I was in the middle of a lot of serious music making. Contemplative and sensitive music. I found myself needing to make something else to keep my ears fresh and to work within a different set of parameters. I'd spent a lot of the decade making very experimental music, without regular structure or rhythm. I turned to dance music to let myself play in a world with more predefined structures and parameters.

After finding a few children's keyboards at a car boot sale in North Devon, I began to experiment using only those to make sounds. As I loosely threw whatever sounds I was drawn into, things began to take shape. Most sounds from '40 40' are played in by hand on a Casio SA-78. It has a wonderfully limited sonic world, but over the years I've grown to like how it sounds and have continued to use it in other upcoming albums. I've spent four years creating this in between other projects, often when I've needed some respite from experimental music.

The Concept:

This is part 1 of a choose-your-own-adventure-dance-mix. The second parts are almost there and will follow a different set of parameters. Part 2a is made almost entirely out of synthesised instruments that come with Logic Pro (the software I use to produce, mix and record my music). Part 2b is made almost entirely out of hardware synthesisers and samples. Each part will seamlessly flow from Part 1, giving you the chance to choose which route you take, a musical fork in the road.

Part 1 is a full journey into the sounds of the Casio SA-78.

It has been immense fun to play with this over the years. I've allowed myself, within a set tempo and key, to go wherever I feel like as and when I'm writing and experimenting. It's been my musical pillow when other works are being brought down from the ether.

I hope you enjoy the journey,

with Love,

Mr Kit X
