about

Maine writes:

I have always equally loved analogue techniques and synthesized sounds, so with this album I wanted to combine the two techniques to the best of my abilities.

‘IV’ was recorded using no native plug in’s or MIDI, some songs taking months to complete. Each take was played meticulously until everything gelled. Each layer of sound would be tweaked and carefully built to create a new sound. Some synth parts have up to 8 different instruments to create the final sound. My obsession with Joe Meek and Phil Spector is to blame.

I wanted to challenge the listener into questioning if they were listening to vocals, guitar or a synth and created many subtle juxtapositions to solidify that. I used my own voice, violin, viola, bowed piano, bowed guitar, a custom built reverb unit from an old piano soundboard, a Leslie speaker for chorus, an old banking hall for live reverb, absolutely everything was deconstructed, reanalysed, replayed and re-recorded until it was perfect in the moment.

It means mountains to me that you have taken the time to not only read this, but to listen to the music and respond. To connect with one person in the world warrants exactly why I did this album in the first place.

Michel Dupay (Maine)
