It's late morning on 23rd December 2013 and I've just taken a seat with the tourists in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey, ahead of a much-anticipated reunion with fellow choristers. This was the moment when my CHORIS evolution began, spiritually moved to create some music to reflect the wonders of the magnificent building which had been 'home' for over four years.
The Cosmati Dream EP was the result, tracks initially being recorded to a Yamaha MM6 synthesizer, in advance of in-studio production and mastering.
The CHORIS sound is a meld of choral and instrumental elements, an expansive and enveloping contemporary soundscape for the closely-related genres of chillout (Cosmati Dream) and dance/house (Toulouse Heartbeat).
Both releases are personal sonic reflections, on the beautiful building that is Westminster Abbey and the mesmerising city that is Toulouse.
Enjoy the music!
