Recording with Tim Harries

06.05.2015

I first met Tim when we were both asked to play in Brian Eno and J Peter Schwalm’s ‘Drawn From Life’ project in 2001. He was, and still is, a huge inspiration to me both musically and personally – changing my understanding of what music could be, and what it could mean.

His writhing, atonal basslines are unique: truly ‘free’, merciless, yet driven by a deep humanity and therefore incredibly moving in both soul and body. I once saw him make 2000 people, including the band, jump in surprise – with a single note. You get the idea.

Check out his projects Puul and Spin Marvel.

Yesterday we were improvising together for a project featuring Martin France, Seb Rochford and Emre Ramazanoglu.
