Details‘Using his familiar and ever-present array of tape machines, Brighton based Will Samson has patiently and carefully crafted his most detailed and ambitious album to date - displaying a much heavier focus on beats and electronics.’
During his many live show performances Will became fascinated with the way in which beats and percussion enabled a more direct and primal connection to music.
“I felt that this is something that can get lost amongst quiet, ambient sets – so I wanted to explore this middle ground. Since drums were the only instrument I had lessons for, I would spend many endless hours editing the tiniest little details of clicks and thumps, which became an almost zen-like process.”
The pieces themselves were created in various locations across Europe and completed on the northern coast of Portugal. Although the cold, rough Atlantic Ocean provided a great backdrop for inspiration and contemplation (sounds of which can be found in the album), the recording environment itself was less romantic. Working from the late evening through to the early hours, as this was the only time the sublet room's feeble heater was able to be used, Samson persevered through the Winter nights, deeply submerged in the creative process.
“The house was so cold at night that there were thick clouds of vapour from my breath when recording the vocals” - he recalls.
