Songs in the Key of Time

When I started working as Anderhill a few years ago, I didn’t know exactly what I was doing, but I knew I wanted to create thoughtful, artistic, and experimental music. As Anderhill, I’ve created a variety of electronic music albums, some more experimental than others. Songs in the Key of Time clearly falls on the more experimental side.

These compositions started in my garage with a simple concept. I recorded the sounds of shaking sheet metal, clanging conduit pipe, sanding wood, clanking chains, and cutting cardboard, among others. Then I used those sounds as the rhythmic component of the compositions. The rhythms are not traditional beats, but rather looped and effected polyrhythms. I weaved minimalist piano and string sounds into the mix and got Songs in the Key of Time.

The title comes from the fact the each of these songs was programmed at 60bpm, the sound and pace of time itself. I used a simple photo of moss on asphalt as the album art, because like the music, it feels organic. – dse
