Alucidnation [artist review]
Alucidnation was born around the time that Bruce invested in his first home studio gear in 1991. Although trained in RSM classical piano, he’d always been more interested in improvisational work, quite happily losing hours doodling away experimenting with chords and the sustain pedal.
After leaving school, he spent a fruitful period between 1986 and 1988 working at Fairview Studios in Hull, cutting his teeth on old studio methodologies; editing and splicing analogue multitrack tape, SMPTE time coding, analogue and early FM synthesis and learning about early sampling techniques using AMS gear. He learned a variety of disciplines, including micing techniques and other studio basics – skills which he still utilises today.
After releasing a couple of 12″ singles in the mid 90’s and self-releasing some CDRs, it wasn’t until his friend Marcus Bailey suggested that Tom Middleton have a listen to some Alucidnation back in 2000 that things started to happen.
Pete Lawrence of the Big Chill signed Alucidnation to Big Chill Recordings on the strength of ‘I’m Not Bad’, and two critically acclaimed EPs followed, with the debut LP ‘Induction’ coming out in 2004.
