Clockwork Keyboard - Watch The Clock EP



A collaboration between me and Joachim Rontxelius from Spain, what started off as a simple request to collaborate on a song for Random Proportions has turned into a full fledged project, which starts here. Close to 30 minutes of sweeping Clockscapes and toetapping Keybeats. This multi-part EP serves as a preview of what lies ahead, watch your clock...


"Composed deep within Keyclock Station, the Watch the Clock EP starts the journey, between brothers J. Drone from Spain and C. Channel from New Zealand, to collaborate and export different musical ideas using various equipment, the ever expanding wastebins of time (as one wiseman once put it) and USSR issued VST keyboards from Mars! More to come, Peace and Love!"

Terminal Window



Available as a free download from Jerky Oats Records: Terminal Window - The FSOLBoard Album. Created and collected together into one sweeping weird and wonderful soundscape. 14 beautiful photographs taken by Pandemonium accompany the album, not looking too far from ready to be printed into a sell-able CD.

"Terminal Window is a music project from FSOLBoard, a community of Future Sound of London fans on the internet. Artists on the board were invited to contribute tracks and collaborations to
the album, given nothing but the title Terminal Window. The final record holds together incredibly well as an individual album, merging ambient breaks from the likes of Loose Link and Noisesurfer with more traditional ambience of Off Land and cubus, and more experimental sounds from Herd and Full-Source. This wide range of styles, knitted together into a single journey, leaves the album sounding not a million miles away from FSOL themselves."

01. Noisesurfer - Undomain
02. Loose Link - Electromagnetic Sound Nursery
03. cubus - Ratsshake tramadol Pseuccele
04. Herd - Tangent 43
05. Clockwork Keyboard - Clockwork Freakout
06. Second Thought - 1801-F.Deletion
07. Off Land - 13th Century Kitichi
08. Noisesurfer - Journey to the Moon
09. Full-Source - Nothing Days
10. Herd - Terminal Window
11. Second Thought - First Understanding
12. Clockwork Keyboard - Techwork Horror
13. Loose Link - Design Defect
14. Herd & Second Thought - Combiner
