"New England Digital is proudly digital, containing six very different sound vignettes ranging from ‘style brisé’ FM harpsichord to abstract techno. At times dreamlike and detached but never without solid harmonic or rhythmical interest, New England Digital evokes scenes from New England pastoral life during the early settlement years.
Christoph Waelkens is a Brussels based musician with a background in both classical and electronic music. In the early nineties he was involved in many dance releases on the pioneering Belgian label Elektron. Later on focusing mainly on piano composition and polyrhythmic music, staying low profile yet highly active. His new music is thematically inspired and New England Digital reflects a lifelong interest in digital synthesis, Shona music, classical and electronic music in general.
All music was recorded with the Yamaha TG77, Waldorf XT synthesizers and Emu Emax sampler.
