A track-by-track commentary on Fordlândia
The album has a theme, although it’s more loose and open to interpretation than on my last album, IBM 1401, a User’s Manual.

This is an album to play when you are sitting alone, reminiscing about bygone times. Subtle, restful melodies and sounds of nature guide the mind to positive, yet nostalgic reveries.

“We had the inbreath with early chillout and then we had the outbreath with dance and external expression and we may sometime see a return to the inward dance or something new. Future music will be fractal, never repeating and spiral like as we progress from the 4 square walls of the 19th century into the number 5 and new world” – Ishq
‘Move’ is a concept EP based around minimal lo-fi recording techniques and short improvised loops. These four songs were played and recorded by Guy using any instruments and household items he could find that made noise. Short loops were constructed and layered on top of each other to create an extremely organic sounding EP. Once the loops were created, Guy arranged them into full songs that mimicks the order they were recorded in to keep the original vibe. Over the entire EP there is only one synthesised sound, a first for iambic!
