Greenwich Light Vessel is ambient (in places), electronic, atmospheric.
It mixes contemporary recording software with vintage electronics - old synths, drum machines, calculators, noise, radios and a dishwasher.
Part experimental, part melodic soundtrack

SPACE was inspired by the SPACE AGE exhibition - organised by the V&A Museum of childhood which toured the UK in 2008. It was played in the gallery space during its time at Sheffield's Weston Park museum.
SPACE is a mix of spacey, sciency, sci-fi theme music and background sound effects for imaginary television, film or radio series.
Think - Sputnik, Space Patrol, Tomorrow's World. In the 1960s people thought we'd be living on the moon by now. This album echoes the bleepy hopes of those days - 14 tracks in all with a mix of music, melody and atmosphere.
Ok, so we're not living on the moon but fortunately there's still awe-inspiring, seriously cool, futuristic stuff about, such as the Lovell telescope at Jodrell bank. Not enough songs get written about radio telescopes.
Inspired by an encounter with a talking lift, ambient Djs Merkin and Alpha Seven hit on the idea of recording them and mixing them in between tracks in their SOFA nights - an ambient club night that ran in various venues in Norwich in the mid to late nineties.
Pete (aka alpha seven) released Great Lift Journeys of Norwich at the start of 1997. It did feature real lift journeys although the media got the wrong end of the stick and assumed it contained nothing else. There followed a bizarre week of national media coverage, finishing with an appearance on the Today programme with lovely Anna Ford.
Later on the CD got some Radio 1 airplay on John Peel and Mark and Lard.
The CD contains 17 tracks and moves between 'proper' ambient tracks and more 'easy listening' stuff - almost muzak in places.

And the journo from Elevator World magazine seemed to like it too.
