Free Music Friday: Reader Ian (poictesme) wrote in to let us know about his new release and to share some kind words:
I’ve just released Mauve Oblong, a 4 track EP of electronica under my stage name poictesme – “blending environmental, animal and machine sounds, synth and instrumental samples, beats and loops, the cosmic, the nostalgic and the mythic into something pleasing to the human ear.”
I came across Synthtopia at a time when life was more than ordinarily difficult. The information on the site has given me the tools and the encouragement to create my own electronic music, which has made a big difference to me. So this little EP is a way of saying thank you for helping to keep me sane!
