new disc soon on 'another timbre'

the great UK label, Another Timbre, will be releasing by mid-July a cd containing some of my playing. It is a beautiful recording featuring myself, Stephen Cornford, Patrick Farmer and Sarah Hughes, and comprising of two pieces of improvisation and a realisation of John Cage's 'Four6'. The title chosen for the cd is No Islands and it will be part of a series of cds on the same label -released simultaneously- called Silence and After.

at46  No Islands  |  John Cage’s Four6 + 2 improvisations by Stephen Cornford [amplified piano] / Patrick Farmer [turntable & electronics] / Sarah Hughes [chorded zither] / Kostis Kilymis [electronics]

The music was recorded late March in Oxford by Simon Reynell and for myself it is a great memento from a handful of very fruitful days I spent with Patrick and Sarah back then, working on a bulk of music that walked the fine line between free improvisation and the realisation of open scores.

Many thanks to Patrick & Sarah; Simon for recording and making the music available; Michael Pisaro for the score that he wrote for us but one that we unfortunately couldn't capture in all its beauty; Q-O2 in Belgium; etc, etc...
