Flite - Polymath (2008) Flite – Polymath, A demo of a demo (2008) 30th May 2015 - This was the first album since moving into the modern world with Cubase SX on a PC. A collection of 30 tunes written over 3 years, Polymath contains many unfinished works and untidy moments, but… read on…
Flite - Red Shift (2005) Flite – Red Shift (2005) 30th May 2015 - This short album was a farewell to my faithful Atari ST before moving to PC. The Atari is the perfect midi machine really; rock solid under any conditions, it crashed occasionally as everything does but… read on…
