Alister Flint Discography
[SLNT033] Alister Flint – Under The Surface [SLNT027] Alister Flint – Alter Nativis [SLNT015] Alister Flint – Uchuu Bought his first “synth” in the mid-90s, a Yamaha PSR500 ®, which was more an arranger rather than really a synthetiser, Alister stepped into the world of eletronic music after having been heavily influenced by key albums such as Tangerine Dream’s Stratosfear or Rubycon, as well as having performed as a techno DJ in free parties in southern France. Late 90s, he bought his first computer equiped with a 16bit soundcard and started to track his first electronic tunes on Fast Tracker ®, which is more like programming rather than any real play, using all kinds of codes to iunput notes, effects and such. But most of his production at time was techno/trance oriented. Shortly after 2000, the release of a revolutionary daw, Reason ®, opened a much wider scope of genres and styles, and he started to produce more downtempo, chilled out, groove-based pieces. And it was also the birth of his very humble home studio, with a Yamaha P-80 ® piano, and a semi-pro Creamware ® soundcard. With the additions of congas, derbekehh, and more recently, Korg nanoSeries as portable studio, he started to produce and perform live some experimental and ambient pieces. He has done a few collaborations with musicians such as C. Vaisvil in various genres, and he’s now actively part of a newly born musician community, Not Only Music, opened to all kinds of genres, and artforms, with an expanding interest for microtonal music. ‘Uchuu’ [SLNT015] is the first release of Alister Flint.
