“The wild geese do not intend to cast their reflection;
The water has no mind to receive their image.”
Welcome to the official Pete Tytler web-site. Thanks for visiting.
In a world of chaos and confusion may you find this space refreshing. A small sane oasis in a world gone mad.
The complete catalogue of my music is available to you here, my artwork, and some HD video promos too — check the tabs above.
Everything I have released you can hear on this site for free without hassle or restriction — you don’t have to install any additional software or register any personal details. Listen to whatever you want, whenever you want, for as long as you want — it’s really that simple. You can buy and download complete albums at a discount price, or just single tracks, whatever you want in any audio format of your choice — just follow the links.
Here’s a link to take you directly to my site at Bandcamp.
It’s fascinating how the internet has changed the whole landscape of music distribution and how technology has revolutionized music production forever.
Now anyone with good technical skills, determination, and creative flair can produce extremely high-quality recorded works. Previously this was only reserved for those with record contracts and even then they were mostly limited by time and budget restraints.
Any decent home studio can now record, edit and mix to a standard of technical excellence that rivals some of the best and most expensive studios anywhere in the world. Using a wide range of modern plug-ins today it is possible to accurately re-create practically any sonic environment found in the “outside world”, and alter sound in unimaginably creative ways. A dream come true!
The creative possibilities are truly mind-numbing.
It’s created a level playing field for everyone, basically more power and creative control to the artist. Far better capability to express what we are. That’s one aspect of a real spirit of freedom and it’s priceless.
I’m also passionate about the freedom of spirit that comes from a life-long practise of yoga and meditation. When you listen to my music perhaps you might sense some of that mysterious spirit.
It’s what it’s all about. It’s exactly the same spirit that drives us all… it’s where all expression through creativity comes from.
Far too many to list but practically everyone from Dylan and the Beatles onwards. (Elvis was just a tad before my time).
Particular influences have been Trevor Horn, Kraftwerk, Malcolm McClaren, Holger Czukay (Can), John Lennon, Boris Blank (Yello), Chris Blackwell, Bernard Herrmann, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Shigeru Umebayashi, Manish Vyas…
Andy Warhol, Bill Hicks, Monty Python, Peter Cook, Spike Milligan, and some of my old ship-mates for exposing the pompous insanity of conventional life.
