about

Hi,

I'm Andrew Tuttle, I'm from Brisbane and a lot of the time I make music that incorporates acoustic instrumentation with signal processing and synthesis. After albums in 2015 and 2016, I've been finishing off a third album which will be out in 2018 - which I can't wait to share with you all in the new year!

Mixtape 3 is *not* the new album.

For this entirely unexpected edition of my 'Mixtape' series, I'm doing something a bit different! This one is all about getting some sleep. I made this entirely for my own purposes but after using it to get to sleep for a few nights thought I'd share it, in case it maybe helps you too?

Recently I've been noticing light pollution at night more than I ever have before, as well as trying to fall asleep with an active mind. So I thought I'd fully embrace the idea of 'genre music' to create some music to doze off to. To do this I went kind of silly playing around with some cheesy pads, delays and presets on the synthesiser; as well as incorporating some phone recordings of recent rain here in Brisbane.

It all came together really quickly one night a short while back, with the three tracks (all variants on the same theme/key/notes) created in one night, with a bit of subsequent mixing the next days to get the sleep/sound balance right.

Each track has been mixed at a slightly lower volume than the previous track, to hopefully (?) slowly lull people to sleep.

Designed by be listened to at low volume, either on speakers or earphones.

Recorded and mixed at home by Andrew Tuttle, October 2017. It all came together pretty quickly and quite unexpectedly. It hasn't been obsessed over, but hopefully that's okay.

Andrew Tuttle Brisbane, Australia

Andrew Tuttle dwells in a between world where five-string banjo and six-string acoustic guitar sit serenely and purposefully with shimmering waves of decay, reverberation and processed electronics. Holding a space that is abundant and generous, Tuttle makes outsider music that turns its listeners into insiders — beckoning a journey which unfolds many heart-opening moments. ... more
