about

Inspired by the 2014 William Gibson novel "The Periphery". I read this one when it came out and was one of those books that had a really profound impact on me, both emotionally and intellectually. I think it really changed how I observe and interpret technology evolution in the context of society.

This album has entirely been composed and recorded during 2021 while I partially re-read the novel while also listening to the audiobook. I have used a really limited set of tools & synths on purpose: almost everything you hear is either coming from an U-He Diva, Arturia Pigments (V3) or an Elektron Digitone, mixed and mastered in Ableton Live.

In some track titles you find references to the book, and that is totally intentional, however not all songs are directly related to the story or the characters - at least not in a conscious way.
