All of the material for the Cydonia Collective's album collection was recorded and mixed using the latest version of Apple's Logic Pro software (installed in both Paul's Studio and Mark's Studio) where processing tricks include using Logic's own plug-ins to create time-stretched, pitch manipulated sounds, often originating with guitar, voice or other acoustic sound sources, which are then processed into evolving drones, textural beds and melodies. We would also like to thank Output in California who provided some of the sound sources on our last 4 albums.

Paul White & Mark Soden

Paul White was originally a drummer in Yorkshire before turning to guitar. Having qualified in electronics Paul was an early adopter of home recording technology. He turned this hobby into a career and became a bestselling author of over 20 music technology textbooks. These include The Producers Manual and The Creative Recording Series. Paul was awarded a BASCA in 2010 alongside John Paul Jones and Lesley Garret. Paul is currently Editor-in-Chief at Sound on Sound magazine. 

Having failed as a Coventry Bass Player in his teens, Mark Soden turned to technology and started collecting monophonic synths and beatboxes. Inspired by the likes of Kraftwerk and DAF Mark became Keyboard Player, Drum Machine Programmer and Vocalist for Coventry electronic outfits ADx3 and The Love Boutique in the 1980's. After 25 years in Media and Tourism he has returned to twiddle those synthesiser knobs once again this time  at his home studio in Malvern where he also works as a Graphic Designer and Website Builder.
