In the year 2001 I decided that I had composed and recorded enough good
material to compile a CD. Most of the tracks however were not mixed and mastered
properly. The PC hardware I had available was driven to its limits because the
playing of the MIDI based tracks in Cubase and the recording of the output of
the analog mixer was done on one PC. I found out that mixing the various tracks
to be in balance with each other was more difficult than I thought. And the
mixing was done on a Sennheiser headphone because I had no monitor speakers.
After mixing a track I would burn it on a RW-CD and listen to it on the stereo
equipment in the living room. You can imagine this took a lot of CD burning.
In May 2002 the CD was ready. I have sent it to some small record labels but
there was not much interest. Also sent the CD to the Dutch iO Pages magazine
where it was positively reviewed by Paul Rijkens. In October 2002 I had a stand
on the E-Live electronic music festival in Eindhoven were I sold quiet a lot of
The title Attorks is a abbreviation of the words Attic Works.
At the time of the release of the CD, I Googled the word Attorks and got zero
hits. It is funny to see how the search results on Google on the word Attorks
has grown over the years.
Beneath you will find the text that was on the back of the CD case. I hope you
will enjoy the music.
