Cedar Mast is the result of an experiment undertaken during the Summer of 2012 at Botany Bay. Having a longtime fondness for video games, and by association, video gaming consoles of years past, it occurred to me how much I always loved the bootup/menu sounds made by the Sega Dreamcast system. My wife bought me a brand new system for my 29th birthday, since our old unit had long since died, and I took the opportunity to sample all of the native sounds the machine makes when there isn't a boot disc inside. As many of you familiar with the Dreamcast will know, these sounds consist of wet, chorus-laden bleeps and chord stabs, which seemed like the perfect ingredients for making techno tracks...and so Cedar Mast was conceived and subsequently created. Everything you hear in these five tracks that is not a drum machine (which is to say, all of the melodies, pads, basslines and even bits of percussion) has been created using only those original sounds from the Sega Dreamcast.

The concept of these recordings ended up proving quite accessible and interesting to a lot of other producers I know, so as I write this, a massive remix effort is already underway, and will be released within the year if all goes well.
