about

ON BANDCAMP FIRST (BEFORE ANY OTHER SERVICE)!

** A new crowdfund appears! **

The inspiration for these songs stem during a period of regular nature-walks in my life whilst taking mossy toy photographs as Tiny Forest Photo Club (search insta for that name). At that time I was listening to lots of nature-focused albums such as Mort Garson's Plantasia, Felbm, Green-House, and some others all the while gently rocking a baby. It put me in a reflective state which had me meditating on the small details around us and the appreciation of slow growth.

Over the following years I have been exploring these organic and nature motifs alongside the workflows and sonic characteristics of various grooveboxes in a bliss of computer-free music making in cozy nooks at home. The Catbeats cats and I have now finally completed a collection of songs which take Tobii and Mazzy on a new adventure! Imagine the cats shrinking and wandering a magical tiny forest filled with all sorts of tiny life and discoveries.

In tradition of the last vinyl crowdfund (I like to call it a "crowdFUN") — the vinyl will be a lightly edited continuous mix of the whole album on Sides A and B with additional voiceovers and exclusive overdubs with mellotron and nostalgic synth-sounds from video-games of yore. Conceptually the voice-overs now are more akin to a guided meditation to help you relax and take you deeper into this catbeats story so it may provide you a needed respite.

I'm excited to bring this new project into the world and invite those old and new to join this crowdfun adventure into the wood... the mushy forest!

Love,
catbeats (=^ ◡ ^=)
