Topography was recorded from December 2009 to January 2010, all with just a Roland SH2 monophonic analog synthesizer. In an effort to avoid bad habits of over-layering synth sounds, all the pieces were improvised with just the synthesizer, a loop pedal and delay pedal (with digital reverb added afterwards). With no computer editing and layering, a more spontaneous and organic sound is created, any unintended sounds becoming part of the loop and in turn taking the piece in new unplanned directions.
