about

Inspired by classical music and the film scores of sci-fi and horror classics such as Terminator, Videodrome and Phantasm, and those of electronic pioneers Tangerine Dream and Vangelis, comes ‘Earth Loop’ - the debut album from William Young aka Moon Gangs. The album casts ambient analogue synth loops alongside cinematic drones, resulting in an evocative, nostalgic soundworld that’s as invigorating as it is foreboding.

A classically-trained pianist, Young composed ‘Earth Loop’ “half and half in a classical sense”, some played live on keyboards, with ideas notated traditionally, the other half created using analogue sequencers with random voltage sources:

“Earth Loop mainly came out of jamming with synths. Everything started as big long rambles recorded live that are then trimmed down into something more concise. Inspiration-wise I’d been listening to more classical stuff, a lot of chamber music for strings, and I think that shows in the string sectiony bits. Although they’re all synths, not actual strings."
