Krononaut EP

05.04.2021

Krononaut, my duo with Martin France, has released a new EP on Tak:Til. “Scratch Test” features Matana Roberts and Arve Henriksen, and you can listen/buy here.

A nice review from London Jazz News, who gave a lot of support to the album last year, is here.

“Scratch Test” and “Loam” are the beginning and end of a 30-minute trio improvisation with saxophonist Matana Roberts, recorded at Lightship Studios. In fact “Scratch Test” is the very first thing we played, ten minutes after Matana arrived. When she and Martin finished their opening phrase in unison, I remember thinking it augured well for the session. 

“Trypography” is taken from the middle section of the same piece; listening back I loved the interplay of drums and guitar, but it lacked a focal point. So we asked trumpeter Arve Henriksen to overdub his part remotely. The title is a made-up word, intended to describe the study of holes.

Ligeti Quartet & Christian Mason

10.10.2020

This amazing set of pieces by Christian Mason based on traditional Sardinian and Tuvan throat singing, has been released on Nonclassical. It also features a piece by Tanya Tagaq which is the most brutal string quartet music I’ve ever heard!

We recorded it at Lightship Studios in Bow.

The Lovely Bones revisited

22.09.2020

Ages ago Brian Eno, Jon Hopkins and I got to gather to make the soundtrack for The Lovely Bones. Various bits of it that didn’t get onto the official soundtrack record were put up on YouTube.

Now, Brian has released a compilation of his soundtrack work and one piece from those sessions is on it – here.
