Shinjuku Thief Quotes
I remember reading about atmospheric inversions a couple of years back and was fascinated by the notion. On further research, particularly after reading about the Belgian and London 'killer fogs', the dramatic potential for a musical treatment seemed quite strong. Once hooking up with Dr. Kurt Patterson's lectures on the subject, highlighting the part atmospheric inversions played in other major environmental disasters such as Union Carbide, Chernobyl and the like, I was sold on the project of using these ideas as a starting point.
Originally, my musical upbringing was pretty conservative and mainstream. It was only into high school that I discovered the German electronic movement, and branched out from there. At school I started writing works for piano, most of which were like some mutant, not to mention extremely worrying, cross between George Winston and Kitaro, moved into electronic music with my first synth, a Korg Monopoly, following the Jarre, Tangerine Dream path, and thereafter pursuing my fledgling interests in world music, Industrial, Musique Concrete, Techno and Post-Classical styles.
