    "There are certainly many facets to Michael Neil's output, as demonstrated especially on later releases. Don't assume anything. Hence fans of his symphonic / spiritual space music need to take note that on this release there is no hint of Michael's traditional styles. This is electronic experimentation at the very cutting edge. Minimalist, challenging. No room for sentiment or melody. This is deep sine wave territory where no compromise is sought or provided. Listen to the sound samples to get an idea, and the use of headphones is highly recommended because much of what happens is subliminal and positional, synthesis distilled down to its base DNA." Graham Getty

about

'Conception' was composed in response to a challenge to produce an “electroacoustic” composition as part of a performance festival at Dartington College of Arts. However, in recognition of my practice within the synthesizer music genre, I deliberately took a different direction and composed the work using one of the earliest digital synthesizers, my ever faithful Yamaha DX9.
Conception is dedicated to composer and sound artist David Prior on the birth of his first child in 2003.

'The Tangible Whispers of Ghosts on the Threshold of Noise and Silence' and it’s companion piece 'Pan and Echo' are experiments in live performance feedback through electronic effects processing. The music is improvised and the spontaneity allows for unforeseen events that could not be contrived.

'The Tangible Whispers of Ghosts…' is inspired by Gaston Bachelard’s book 'The Poetics of Space' and Sigmund Freud’s essay 'The Uncanny', which are concerned with the nature of an artistic response to the sites and spaces of our intimate lives and the memories - ghosts - of our real or imagined past.

'The Tangible Whispers of Ghosts on the Threshold of Noise and Silence' is dedicated to the composer Frank Denyer on his 65th birthday in April 2008.
