BITS was a personal musical project from 2021.

Over 3 months I produced a track each day using an old Bit 99 synthesiser - 99 in total. I then mixed selected tracks down into 3, hour long continuous mix albums.

The 3 albums are available on Spotify, Bandcamp and YouTube, and you'll find all 99 tracks on YouTube as well.

The results are very lo-fi, and mostly in a dark ambient style. Personal favourites include BITS 38, 42 and 84.

For me the project was an attempt to kick-start musical creativity through strict constraints and regular practice.

It also gave me an excuse to take lots of photos of this beautiful, glitchy old vintage keyboard.

Finally, to remember the project, I made a little coffee table book.
