about

This is a collection of songs harking back to the days in the mid-80s when The Oxford Ambient Collective used to work for a firm called The Numerical Algorithms Group and made heavy use of a mainframe called a VAX 11/750, mostly copying the old reel-to-reel tapes hour by hour.

The music in this set was composed using apps such as PPG Wavemapper, PPG WaveGenerator, Waldorf and Sunrizer. I am very much trying to evoke a warm analog nostalgic feel to these tracks.

NAG Group were and still are makers of scientific and mathematics based software. This album is be a nostalgic lok back at some of the hardware/software that was used to be used.

Available as a download from the link above and as a Compact Disc that comes with the label’s moniker and artist and album information printed on it. Comes with a slim-line CD jewel case and inlay.

about

David Smith Oxford, UK

I have been creating music for many years now. As my artist name suggests I tend to focus on ambient based tunes.

This can take the form of piano improvisations, use of orchestral based sounds to using pure synth tones and spacey vibes and textures. This kind of makes me very much a soundscape/soundtrack composer. I am always happy to collaborate!
