Andy Pickford - Biosphere

Artist: Andy Pickford  
P: 2020

Well now what's different about this one then?
Actually... a fair bit. This album was composed and produced sequentially ie: from start to finish in that order, with everything in mind as a complete work... sort of thing. Rather like my album Lughnasad is in approach, although not in overall sound. Methinks this one is more for the Tangerine Dream dudes out there

Andy Pickford - Dystopia

Artist: Andy Pickford  
P: 1995 

Simply one of the UK’s most talented musicians to have emerged on the synthesizer music scene! Andy Pickford's initial albums were influenced heavily by the likes of Vangelis and Alan Parsons, but with the arrival of the best-selling ‘Maelstrom’ album he created an original mix of powerful and more relaxed synthesizer/keyboards music that was full to the brim with sweeping melodies, multi-dimensional layers, powerful rhythms and ideas a-plenty.
These first three albums were (and still are to this day) as rewarding a musical experience as they come. Always keen to discover new musical areas, subsequent albums saw him moving into a mix of styles within synthesizer music realms, than a long break, which eventually came to an end with the emergence of ‘Lughnasad’, his first solo album for several years, and that saw him delivering a highly expansive and exotic mix of synths/keyboards-led melodies, rhythms and spacey ambience, putting him at the forefront of the UK synth music scene once more.
Tracks 1 and 7 recorded during 1994 as part of the GPR sessions.
Tracks 2, 5, 8, 9 and 11 recorded 1993-1994 as part of the Terraformer sessions.

Andy Pickford - Maelstrom 2019

Artist: Andy Pickford  
P: 1995 / 2019

Edited notes from Andy:

Well here we are with something I genuinely thought wasn’t going to be possible. The viability of the source files for one thing. On the previous 16bit remaster one thing I wasn’t able to achieve to any degree of satisfaction, was to de-clip and de-saturate files which had already been through the mastering process. That’s a mid-90’s mastering process at a large London studio ie: flatlined most of the way through. Along comes 2019 and I’ve got a few better, individual source files (I found a backup DAT!), I have de-clipping, de-saturation and all round general de-shitting. I ended up surprising myself on hearing the difference. In all, this is a pretty viable upgrade to the original and should make you lovely audiophiles quite happy.
Oh, and brace yourself for dynamics. This version of Maelstrom actually has them!! I don’t actually know how the wavefile un-flatlines itself and starts sounding nice again, but who cares, it works! I also noticed the initial process had really raised up any drums and focused on giving a 90’s thud to any kick drums, at the behest of the actual bass and some mid stereo spread. So I re-emphasised that.
Basically i did my best to create something more like what my stuff sounds like today.

Andy Pickford - Nemesis

Artist: Andy Pickford  
P: 1998  

The style of this CD is usual, if you already know any other Andy Pickford CD.
It is orchestral, with some piano and soundsamples, sometimes the soundtrack character comes out between the notes and then the drummachine shows us, how Andy wants us to move.
Straight melodies cover the rest.

Andy Pickford - Panopticon Album 1

Artist: Andy Pickford  
P: 2020

There is a lot of material in this latest album by Andy which is filled with a vision more sweet than usual and with a lot of melodies that are lost at times in this long mosaic that has its lengths. Otherwise, fans of the first era of AP will be delighted by this album that seems to be stuck in this period of the English musician.

Andy Pickford - Pareidolia Vol 1

Artist: Andy Pickford  
P: 2020

Melodic great syntheizer themes. This is the music we like from Mr. Pickford.
As always it's been a lot of fun messing with the Kronos, the Prophet 12, the A6, V-Synth, Virus T12, Radias, MS20, JD800, JP8080, the shedload of software synths blah blah blah. Well it's always worth name-dropping those buggers since they are me babies :-D
A couple of self-observations this time. Over the duration of these works I've noticed how I've got into the habit of hitting record, playing my line through and basically leaving it as is. It's impressive now how much I play through in entirety in one take. I used to fumble so much years ago. Solos might end up getting played through dozens of times until I could actually play the things reliably enough! Same with any lines requiring effort. I'm a terrible butterfingers! But with these pieces allowing for a much more relaxing approach, I've lost any conscious worries about making mistakes and I just play pretty much everything as it comes.
