a sort of constructed improvisation by watson, marsh and may

during a recent recording session of improvs by this trio, ian the trumpeter suggested we all record solos separately and then the results could be combined afterwards using the magic of technology. this was the result, combined and fiddled about with by me. my own solo was very short and not particularly inspired, so instead i added some globs of electronics using my trusty olde prophecy synth. there isn't a huge amount of editing - just laying the trumpet and drums together seemed to work for the most part. there's bit of effects work but not much. you can hear the trio in its 'natural' state here...

ian r watson - trumpet
paul may - percussion
peter marsh - synth, editing, dicking about

Oh, I love it so very much. I thought I was the only person who ever played around with the fundamental range on the trumpet. Is there actual influence from Supersilent with you lot, or is it just coincidental? Either way, you just gave me a sensual sonic massage, and I didn't even have to pay extra for the happy ending. Ambient, improv-y afterglow; I has it.

thanks! well, we all like supersilent (at least me and ian do). they are one of the most amazing bands i've ever seen live. but i think like you and your fellow demons, there's all sorts of things that come out when we play. it's a running joke between us that if we were norwegian we'd probably get a lot more attention...:-)
