relax – it’s instrumental music


empire 125 earthshineGerman magazine Empire writes this about the album in edition 125:

Peter Cox, the Chinawhite guitarist, continues his journey into instrumental electronic music with Abstract Patterns. The Dutchman describes the music as ambient, new age, film music and lounge, and that hits the spot. The often very melodic themes and sounds invite you to dream. The guitars that are added here and there create a welcom variation. For the quieter moments in life.
Thanks Martin!

legacy 112 earthshineGerman Metal (!) magazine Legacy wrote a piece about the Abstract Patterns CD too. Since this type of music isn’t really aimed at their target group, I am pretty pleased with what they write! Some quotes translated to English:

  • a disc that comes across as very atmospheric
  • dominating instruments are piano, mellotron and synthesizer
  • an album for the quieter moments which could be fulfilling for people into instrumental music

dmme earthshineDmitry from DMME shares his thoughts about my latest album Abstract Patterns here. Obviously no stranger to some of the terms I used when coming up with the titles and music for this release, Dmitry has a great way of describing his listening experience!
It makes me smile when I can make other people smile 😉

thank you for your support.

Next week will see the official release of my new album Abstract Patterns. For any musician that is a period that is both exciting as well as a bit tense. Personally I am very happy with the outcome, so we will see how it will be received.
A quick way to sample some of the tracks is the next video:

earthshine - abstract patternsSo here it is, the front cover of album V, Abstract Patterns. The album will also be released on October 27 and contains 8 tracks. Blekkmark Design Studio has not only created some fitting artwork, but also updated the logo.

This time my starting point was certain terms and patterns that associate with numbers or ranges of numbers and terms from the world of programming. Like for instance the Fibonacci sequence, or Pi. And my next step would be to translate those numbers to chords and melodies and trying to make it sound right. Without letting it become crazy or incoherent.
I quite liked the challenge and the outcome, but you be the judge!

You can now order the album at Rock Company and they will ship starting early October. Which means you could already have it before it’s official release. And the best thing is, if you order now, you get it at a reduced price. And with the flat shipping rate at the webshop, there is no reason to pick up some more…

The tracks can be found on the next pic:
