Glimmer Room

Andy Condon lives in a self imposed exile in the wilds of north Essex, and has worked as The Glimmer Room since the turn of the century. After many years building a career predominantly in the live music scene, Andy grew tired of all the travelling and general upheaval that life in a busy band entails, and thereafter retreated into the safety of the studio, where he worked as part of a short-lived experimental dance collective called Neesh.

Having spent the best part of the 80’s trying to get his music signed to a label Bit Pixel gave up the ghost and joined the rat race. Spending his days working in a biscuit factory, dreaming of what might have been. Meanwhile in another part of the south east of England, Wayne at Lucky Pierre who while going through his mums loft had found a bag of old demo tape’s believed to have been rescued from a bin outside the then Mute Records office in London sometime between 1986 and 1988. When he heard the faded, long lost and rejected pop songs of bit pixel, he felt a calling to put this wrong to rights. At all costs this album had to be made. It took Wayne a good few months to finally track Bit down and put the offer to him, Wayne would buy Bit a nice new laptop to compliment his battered and aged synths and give him the software required to produce an album for his record label Lucky Pierre Recordings. So full with a new enthusiasm and feeling of optimism Off Bit went laptop in hand back to life in the biscuit factory. But this time spending every last spare minute of the day working on sounds and melodies at last his dream was to be realised. Five years later that album was delivered to Wayne who had waited patiently, checking in every now and then to take stock of progress. With the hard work behind him life is still the same the factory still calls at 7:30 every morning, this time made bearable by the fact that some one some where may just be playing his music. These days evenings are spend planning new sounds and melodies. Some might say 20 years too late, we just say better late than never.
If you liked Pet Shop Boys, Human League, Depeche Mode, Howard Jones, O.M.D, Celebrate The Nun, Erasure. You just might love Bit Pixel.

The Glimmer Room - Grey Mirrors

A chill out album of epic proportions from Te Glimmer Room, Grey Mirrors is in a bit of a new direction from Tomorrows Tuesday. It is still The Glimmer Room through and through with the atmospheric sequences, lush string and choral pads but this time it is stripped down to the bones, slowly evolving through eight subliminal parts. Taking the listener on a journey not through time and space but more the times of a space.
The whole package is a piece of art in itself, the professionally pressed disk is presented in a DVD box with full color wrap and inside the sleeve notes take the form of a personalized letter printed on high quality parchment effect paper and then wax sealed.

The Glimmer Room - Home without the Journey

Home Without The Journey is the third studio album from The Glimmer Room. Two and a half years in the making, this is the most complex and intricate album Andy Condon has recorded to date.
The title track moves through many delicate movements in the twenty-eight minuets of the track, from the full and dense moments we move into a tidal ambient landscapes and back again. It all ends up as a subtle sonic monument to all the lessons learned working on the first two The Glimmer Room albums.
Carbon Statues the second track was recorded in a sleepless weekend after being left home alone. Again Andy follows the wish to explore the more fluid style of music introduced in Home Without The Journey. The result is a very introspective and delicate melodic piece wrapped up in almost tidal washes of processed sounds. The track features the voice of the late Robert Oppenheimer.
The third track Cool Blue And The Plough is a track of two halves; the first slowly introduces a long and evolving cyclic sequential theme punctuated with bursts of melody. This acts as the perfect introduction to the last half and the climax of the album. This last part brings with it the feeling of the sun breaking through the clouds with a melancholy melody and a choral pad that was recorded to sound like a sonic double helix running through the track.
Cool Blue And The Plough features The Jupiter 8’s OJ on fretless bass guitar. Making a break away from the modern trend to make CD’s sound as load as possible but at the cost of a loss in dynamics.
Home Without The journey has purposely been mastered in a way that holds back on shear volume to make way for an album that follows the highs and lows in a much more intimate and emotional way.

The Glimmer Room - Tomorrows Tuesday

This is an album of melodies like ice cream; they feel so wonderful, ultimately disappear leaving you with just the memory of what was, and the earnest desire to experience it all again at the first available opportunity. With swathes and layers of flowing, sliding, gliding synths, soaring leads, a solid drumming foundation, deep synth bass and more musical ideas than the Euro-mainlanders have over a dozen albums, this is a staggering achievement and one that is a signpost in how to produce a commercial set of synth music tracks without ever conforming to clich or meandering from its chosen path. It's original, has its roots in the most unlikely areas, features mellotron sounds, synths, percussives and is one of the finest UK synth albums around to day - an essential purchase.
