about

This album is a collection of mainly-instrumental tracks that I wrote and recorded from around 2002 to 2012, when I got back into making music after a long time away. I bought a PC and a copy of Steinberg's Cubasis and tried to put together some ideas that came out of playing with samples and midi step input for the first time. I've now decided to give the tracks away for free (or pay what you want!) as most of them have already appeared on various music hosting sites or netlabels over the years.

Some of the tracks have been used in surfing movies, such as O'Neill's Deep Blue Open (2005), and some have had great reviews and feedback on various "unsigned" sites such as the now long-departed Electromancer and unsignedbandweb. The former introduced me to the art of remixing with Croydon Library (Dewey Decimal Transcendental Mix), and led me on to doing official remixes for the likes of Pitch Black, Banco de Gaia, and Tom Bailey's International Observer.

All tracks are as they were originally recorded, with varying sound levels and no mastering.

This is me. Tim Blackburn aka mistrust. I’ve done official remixes for Pitch Black, Banco de Gaia, Animat, International Observer, and more. I've been a part of the ever-growing Electronic Music Open Mic Nights collective since it began. I'll be forever grateful to everyone who let me loose on their amazing tracks, especially Pitch Black, Banco de Gaia and Dubmission Records. ... more

Track Name: Distant Shores (aka Commitment Reading of the Pueblo Tribes)
Before we met, you and I were halves unjoined except in the wide
rivers of our minds. We were each other’s distant shore, the
opposite wings of a bird, the other half of a seashell. We did not
know the other then, did not know our determination to keep alive
the cry of one riverbank to the other. We were apart, yet connected
in our ignorance of each other, like two apples sharing a common
tree. Remember?

I knew you existed long before you understood my desire to join my
freedom to yours. Our paths collided long enough for our indecision
to be swallowed up by the greater need of love. When you came to me,
the sun surged towards the earth and moon escaped from darkness to
bless the union of two spirits, so alike that the creator had designed them for life’s endless circle. Beloved partner, keeper of my heart’s odd secrets, clothed in summer blossoms so the icy hand of winter never touches us.

I thank your patience. Our joining is like a tree to earth,
a cloud to sky and even more. We are the reason the world can laugh
on its battlefields and rise from the ashes of its selfishness to hear me say, in this time, this place, this way – I loved you best of all.
