about

Hues is the result of “listening” to the colours I use in the sounds I create. For this reason, I felt it important to choose the colours for the design of the album cover since each colour represents a track.

What I found interesting in researching the hexadecimal numeral system is that it is a system made up of 16 symbols, using the decimal numbers and six extra symbols. There are no numerical symbols that represent values greater than nine, so letters taken from the English alphabet are used, specifically A, B, C, D, E and F as A = 10, B = 11, C = 12, D = 13, E = 14, and F = 15.

Computers only have on and off, called a binary digit (or bit, for short). A binary number is just a string of zeros and ones: 11011011, for example.

In the 1960’s, engineers would group 3 bits at a time (much like large decimal numbers are grouped in threes, like the number 123,456,789. Three bits, each being on or off, can represent the eight numbers from 0 to 7: 000 = 0; 001 = 1; 010 = 2; 011 = 3; 100 = 4; 101 = 5; 110 = 6 and 111 = 7.

Grouping of three’s is how this album came to be, I hope you enjoy listening to the colours grey, yellow, and white.

All sounds recorded at various locations in Europe, Japan and South America, at MESS (Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio) and at EMS (Elektronmusikstudion, Stockholm).
