A few of you will probably be familiar with my ambient based Tread Softly project and may be wondering why I haven’t put anything out in so long. Well you can breathe a sigh of relief as I have shelved the dusty old thing. I found it was turning into something it was never intended to be. From now on I shall be releasing solo music under my nick name; Hali, this time with no aesthetic limitations.
As well as this I shall also be releasing music with my friend Frazer under the name Antonym, although this may change despite its inclusion of the name Tony; the name of the creator of all things. Probably. Most named things will probably change, I only named the tracks just now to upload them so I don’t have Frazer’s approval!
Anyway, we’ve knocked together some VERY rough demos for you guys to have a sneak preview! (Cor aren’t you lucky). We’d be interested in feedback. We mainly just want to know what you think of the songs as songs. Particularly; the golden question: is this unique (enough)?
I should also point out we have literally done what came into our heads first and have made no conscious attempt to sound like anyone else or avoid sounding like anyone else. Also for you laptopophobes I should point out that no presets were used in the making of these demos.
