The Conception - WRITTEN BY THE PRODUCER, BARIS TOSUN
“Dominic was playing guitar with a bunch of hippies one night in Istanbul when, seeing the opportunity to play to an appreciating audience, I joined them. As the rest of the crowd went off to socialise and couple up, Dominic and I continued to sing and play for hours. I had some recording equipment in my apartment and within a couple of weeks he was over and we recorded what was to be the 4th track on the album, ‘Bauhaus’. That was a pivotal moment - for that song that inspired me to complete my ambition of setting up a remote recording studio - far from the distractions of City life (I grew up in London where prolonged silence is a commodity and studio time is bloody expensive).
“Fours seasons later my studio in the South-West of Turkey was complete, and on a diet of beer, crisps and chocolate, we were recording the tracks for Paper Wallpaper.
“Paper Wallpaper is an album with a story; the story of a hitchhiker who, together with a guy he met on a chance encounter, recorded an album in the space of 4 weeks - with no previous experience of studios or recording. Dominic has many of the same influences you might expect of a 20-something-man-that-sings-and-plays-guitar, only he has plied his trade on the streets of European cities and towns, far from the pretentious, snobby dives that make the ‘music scenes’ of The West. What you’re hearing is the sound of a guy who is dedicated to his art and passionate about music - no more, no less.”
