My new solo release “Studies and Observations of Domestic Shrubbery” is now out on eh? records. Label boss Bryan Day did the artwork. Listen and purchase it here.
On this solo album I decided to limit my sound palate to only a few sound sources and not to use any of my usual electronics, preparations, motors, tapes, or amplified objects. Recently I noticed that the cello, clarinet, and cardboard could each produce very similar sounds that could be mistaken for breathing. This was the starting point. My music nowadays always includes everyday objects because of their domestic relationship and unpredictability, in this case the cardboard. The titles of the four tracks (Sky Saw, Boxwood, Giant Hogweed, and Chokeberry Swallow) relate to childhood memories and musical influences.
