The Seventh Sun" is an album which consists of songs composed around seventh chord intervals. The album's style is a mix of minimalist Dream Pop, Twee, Post-Rock, Synth-pop, and Progressive Rock. The Jazzy vibe is due to the usage of seventh chords.
This album was recorded in a very "Live" fashion with mostly improvisational/ minimal writing and minimal editing, be it MIDI or audio.
This version of the album was produced on Ampex 456. The tapes were damaged then repaired, copied to new reels and transferred. The original reels cannot be played anymore and are currently in storage. No pitch or rhythm correction was used.
Virtual instruments and some effects done on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 on Reason and Studio One.
