Morphology 1.0 is a collection of curiosities, original tracks and remixes that tie up the loose ends of the last few years into a rather lovely synopsis. With one eye set on the past it manages to hint at the direction of future releases.
I've always wanted to hear how other people would interpret my music. More specifically perhaps, how the nature of their interpretations would integrate and live as entities beside some of my unreleased newer material.
Morphology 1.0 is the rounding glory in a triptych of releases starting with Hunab Ku and Desolate Sound whilst still hinting at a future direction for Venn Diagram's material via tracks like Kodokushi, Gelatine, Soma:Redux and Caduceus. It's a diverse beast that still manages to sound like a complete album and I am impressed with how well the collaborative/remix process integrated with my own musical vision.
Jan, Eric, James, Bunny, Uwe, Emil, David, Chris and Adrian thank you for all your support and feedback whilst creating this.
Biologik, Little Birds, Honeysmack and Kibeja - for your superb remix / collaborative efforts that have made this album what it is and to both Stereospread & Little Birds for letting me release my remixes of their work on this album (I am forever grateful)
Special thanks to Joseph Carra @ Crystal Mastering and Arovane for the kind words of wisdom and Filter Label for enabling this release to see the light of day.
I'd like to dedicate this album to Rob for being the one unwavering constant in a fragile sea of self doubt. You always believe I am capable of greatness and I am forever humbled. Thank you.
