about

Heal Me is a four-track EP that I’ve been working on for a couple of years. It is a very personal selection that lived with me during a difficult time of recovery after an accident. In October of 2018 I fell from a ladder when I was setting up visuals for one of my Midnight
Ritual events in Bristol, and severely injured my left shoulder. The mixed emotions of regret, embarrassment and panic made for a turbulent winter as I had to wait for a long time for an operation. At the end of February, 2019 I went in for surgery and spent the next three months recovering.
During the first three weeks after the medical procedure, I spent a lot of time in bed dealing with chronic and surgical pain, as well as with the emotional process of dealing with such an injury, trying different ways of tricking my mind away from focusing on the hurt and sense of impotence from not being able to work or do the things I was used to doing. Luckily, the weather in Bristol around the time was very gentle: many sunny mornings and afternoons went by bringing into my room the lush smells of Spring, and the sounds of children playing on their way home from school, birds singing, all that jazz... I listened to a lot of Miles Davies.
On my windowsill, I kept all my meds right next to my Akai MPC Live and Novation Circuit, which I would turn on to escape into the worlds they enabled me to create during that fuzzy time awarded by strong pain killers and sunshine. I sketched about 36 little musical experiments on both machines and the four tracks you are listening to here are the ones that developed into fully-fledged “songs”. I found the process of writing music whilst recovering entirely healing, if not physically, then definitely from an emotional perspective. Each sketch enabling me to explore being in the moment with sounds, abstract, found, manipulated, created from scratch....
After I recovered I almost abandoned this music, but after a few months I began working again with some of the ideas that I developed in that very specific time. I added some extra layers with other hardware like the Roland SH-01A, the Arturia MicroFreak and the Waldorf Rocket, experimenting with compositions and arrangements so that these tracks would enable healing escapism whilst allowing listeners to move their butts too! I don’t always take so long in writing music and it was sometimes a struggle to maintain the creative thread.
However these tracks were like voicing an intent, like asking the universe to please “Heal Me” and when COVID arrived, they took on a different meaning. Could this little organism heal the “Me” in all of us and help us see past the divisions of the global world we inhabit? Could it heal the Earth through the disruption of our blinkered way of life? If anything, “Heal Me” is like a prayer, a hopeful collection of moments that may bring some peace and most importantly, some much needed healing joy.
Marta Zubieta created the beautiful cover for this EP working on some of the ideas I presented above but also from the idea of a biological, psychedelic journey into finding that which may heal you, and maybe not in a physical sense... I hope will enjoy these tracks. Big love!
