about

The mini album was recorded at my home studio over a two and a half week period in June 2020 and focuses on long tonalities that gradually alter in harmonic colour and shape. Each piece is an attempt at fusing the fragile acoustic of bass clarinet with synthetic sounds generated by electronic instruments, tape machines and samplers. Most of the durations follow natural breathing exercises and occasionally use extended circular breathing patterns. 

Dream Scenario was worked on separately using an improvisation given to me by Phil Durrant playing thumb piano before erasing Phil's original recording completely. It's presented here as a response, rather than as a reworking, of the original. A different version of this track appears on Linear Obsessional's Self Isolating Congregation project in a completely altered form and in collaboration with Longstone.
