This period was spent making a lot of music with and for other people, experiences that have brought me to this project standing on much firmer ground - a smarter person and a much better musician.
The project features a larger ensemble and more elaborate compositions, but the voice is the same voice - intricate counterpoint laid over asymmetric and pseudo-ethnic beats, balancing "written and prepared" with a fair amount of risk (calculated?)
The players were brilliant, the engineers first class, and the artwork a blast. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed making it.
