about

This record is an audio diary, and i'm letting you read it.

After a harrowing year, I decided to face my own demon, myself, and take a trip across the U.S.A. on my own. The only thing I took with me bar my essentials was my OP-1 synth which has the capability to record 4 tracks of audio, including it's own drum and synth engines, microphone and sampler.
I made a track every day when I found a view or a location that I wanted to put into music, then scoured the radio for something interesting.

My intention for this record is that it should be listened to as a non-coherent sketchbook or diary. It is a document of not just the locations, but my mood, my awareness and most importantly my loneliness.
Think of it as a soundtrack to the movie i saw through my eyes for two weeks, then instead of transcribing it to a blog, i transcribed it to music with my love for Hype Williams/John Carpenter/Boards of Canada in mind. It is more an art installation than a coherent album.

I resisted the urge to alter anything or really mix/master this record properly. I wanted what you hear to be the most like what I created at the time.

Please feel free to pay what you want for this record. Every little helps.

YULA and JAD are two characters from my favourite animation Les Maitres du Temps. They stow away on a spacecraft looking for adventure.

I am really happy that I did this trip, and transcribed it into this. I hope you enjoy getting an idea of how my brain worked while I was over there.

All tracks composed and performed by Paul Marshall Copyright 2017.

This record contains very small samples from the radio. Mostly altered and distorted from their original form, and I do not know any of the tracks they are actually sampled from, or who they belong to. However, if any artist notices a sample from their track and are not happy with it's use, I will not argue and take the track down straight away.
