Largely Electronic, with a nod to Acoustic, and 60's sounds!

Hi Gibbo, Bob, Keith and Terry, I had a friend who owned a Floatation Tank in the 1980's, I went in it several times, the first time I was floating, I had a Martial Arts lesson in Nunchaku technique, given by a very intense Emperor Penguin! LOL! (no joke this happened)
Needless to say I didn't rush back, but I am intrigued, I also have seen "Altered States" and that makes you think too! (see Dan's comment)
Thanks for all the kind words folks, I'll be tuning in to planet mp3u, as often as possible, but with much less "screen time" and more "canvas time" it will be more intermittent!
I just love this Andrew, the float tank, sensory deprivation? I've read about them, sounds amazing. Have you read The Door to December by Dean Koontz? A very disturbing story about a float tank, not quite so restful! Big thumbs and have fun with the art. Gibbo
I enjoyed floating in the float tank.. nice sounds.. gonna miss them.. I do understand about the visual art though..
Well I for one enjoy this ...um..tranquil 'float tank' audio! (never been in one) Very at peace with itself...wish the bloody world could feel more like that. Guess this music doesnt belong to this world...just to the civilised few. A lovely float it is though...keep on 'truckin' Andrew...enjoy your painting/music/whatever you do old matey...as do we! keith
grounding in the textures and colours of visual art...takes us back to the colours and textures of sound..back and forth...one sustains and infuses the other...got it all inside you, Andrew, and glad you are expressing it...glad for this updrift...contemplative repose. :)
Hi Dan and Rich, LOL! Yeah I know what you mean, in Australia we have this singer John Farnham, who has had so many "Final Tours" it's not funny, seems when the taxman comes they all do this! LOL!
P.S Love Cher too, I think I have that one on DVD!
oops on the e on Cher
Paint away Andrew. But for some reason you remind me of Chere with her final tours for the last 5 years or so...lol
I love what you do and you are one prolific musician. Even with all the tunes you put out and it's a lot, they're all wonderful and i so enjoy my time with Andrew DNA Codex Shields.
I'm guessing I could devolve into primal man if I was in a float tank listening to this. course I'm close to being there anyway so there's that, but this is quite the mesmerizing piece of work. enjoy your "vacation" and look forward to the next time you post something...
I have been (pretty much) into recording since the mid 1980's, even before I bought my first 4-track cassette recorder (A Tascam Porta-One) I did a few things at a Melbourne based art school where I ran a couple of tape decks, with manipulated sounds on the tapes, just to hear what it sounded like, needless to say it was experimental!
Thereafter I tried to get onto some more serious recording, and tried my hand at steel string guitar songs, I am a left handed person, who plays guitar right handed, so I don't ever need to re-set any instrument, and also the left handed way does not feel right to me, I'm not sure why this is, but it just is!
Recently I have been enticed by all the modern soft-synths and incredible processing availabe to computer aided recording, and I mainly (still) use Garageband when I track, I have tried Ableton Live and Pro-Tools, but I need to learn a whole lot more, the are very intetesting, but I always go back to Garageband, for some reason I find it works for me, and is quite similar to my old Atari ST (running Cubase 0.1!) which I still have, and it still works too!
Anyhow, I try a variety of genre's and I love all electronic music, I also like Ambient, World, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop....etc
Music is like oxygen to me, I don't think I could ever live without it!
