'Earth Loop', the debut album by BEAK> keyboardist William Young's Moon Gangs project, is set for release via Village Green Recordings. A classically-trained pianist, Young composed 'Earth Loop' "half and half in a classical sense", some played live on keyboards, with ideas notated traditionally, the other half created using analogue sequencers with random voltage sources. "Earth Loop mainly came out of jamming with synths. The mixer I use is an old Tascam 144 so if things are sounding good I just hit record and get it to tape. Everything started as big long rambles recorded live that are then trimmed down into something more concise. Inspiration-wise I'd been listening to more classical stuff, a lot of chamber music for strings, and I think that shows in the string section-y bits. Although they're all synths, not actual string. It was recorded all over the place over quite a long time which I guess is why there are a lot of different 'moods' on it, rather than it being a document of a specific period of time/place. I also started building a field recording library over the last couple of years so there's quite a bit of that in there, but they're generally processed and run through synths so they're not too recognisable". - William Young, Moon Gangs
