Colin Edwin Releases “Allusions”
Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree, O.R.k., Twinscapes) has just released a new album called Allusions, which he describes as “nostalgic lo-fi solo bass processed with reverbs, delay, and echoes.” Though he began experimenting with the sounds earlier this year, the album’s direction certainly fits our current times.
“Inevitably, I can’t do what I usually do and play with other people, so, as fits the current times, I’ve made a series of solo bass recordings,” the bassist explained to us. “I’ve used mostly fretless bass with a looper and lots of FX, especially reverb and delay, but for an extra level of nostalgic hauntology, I processed a lot of the sounds through an ancient 4 track cassette recorder, consequently all hisses, clicks, pops, and noise are entirely intentional.”
