CosmoMoose is an electronic music project from British composer and producer Chris Medway, who has a natural gift for creating catchy melodies out of thin air and the attention to detail to craft vast soundscapes and rhythms around these melodies.
CM's aim is to create melodic, infectious and enchanting electronic dance and ambient music that transcends space and time.
It's hard to believe but all the music is recorded on a laptop using a small MIDI controller keyboard, often on train journeys to work or in lunchtimes at work where Chris enters his own world - the world of CosmoMoose.
Chris is married to Sharon and has a son Joshua. He had previously written songs for musical theatre, children and worship but with CosmoMoose has gone back to his first love - electronic music.
The Story of CosmoMoose:
Chris is an ordinary devoted family man, living in an ordinary house, and working full time in an ordinary office. Each day Chris commutes to and from work by train hammering away on his laptop computer. However, Chris doesnt use his laptop to create spreadsheets or play games. No, with studio headphones on, Chris is in his own world using powerful music software to create drum tracks, edit MIDI data, adjust sound effects, splice audio waves, change synth settings and 101 other things needed to create his next electronic music masterpiece. Alone on a crowded train, Chris Medway is creating the sound of CosmoMoose thematic, melodic electronica music.
Sometimes, maybe early evening or weekends, outside Chris study you can hear beats and melodies endlessly starting and stopping as Chris carefully mixes and masters each track, getting the next masterpiece ready to share with the world.
Yet, this most unlikely of electronic music composer/producers could be the creating the next dance phenomenon, whether the robotic, retro/futuristic Cosmic Invasion to the folk/trance of JiGiToN. Whatever, there is always something creative and exciting in store from the studio of CosmoMoose. As the listener all you need to do is listen, dance, relax and enjoy!
Chris Medway = CosmoMoose.
Bridging the gap between Cosmo and Moose.
Listen. Dance, Relax. Enjoy.
I had previously written songs for musical theatre, children and church worship (see www.chrismedway.com) but in January 2011, I went back to my first music love: Electronic Music. As this music is so different from my previous music, particularly a kids' CD I released in 2009, I thought I should give the act a different name: so CosmoMoose was born.
The synth genius of Jean Michel Jarre, dance music of Sash, Dario G, Robert Miles etc, creative electronica like Moby, Royksopp, and Daft Punk and expressive electronica like Vangelis and Kitaro.
Laptop with Cakewalk Sonar. Favourite software synths: Cakewalk's z3ta, Dimension Pro, Pentagon I (esp. the vocoder), and PSYN II plus I like the UVI engine with Plugsound Pro
