I’d planned to do some recording on the Friday afternoon 4th Feb but it was so windy the night before, I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it. The wind whips around the house, blows the bins over, whistles around the windows, makes the trees shimmer and the mics pick it all up and loop it endlessly. I didn’t want to do that on this particular occasion, just wanted to record some singing. But, still, on the Thursday night I set up my kit to check that everything was ready and worked OK. In the absent mindedness of simply playing I caught the music in the player below. It was edited down from about 18 minutes worth of playing and maps a gradual progression of the improvisation.
I was to release this as a business card cd-r for the Her Name is Calla gig at Firebug, Leicester 29th March but because of not really being able to play live at the minute I’m not sure what to do with it, other than have it digitally available. The work in progress sleeve looks a little like this.
I hope you enjoy it.
