Demos 2010-2011

Here’s some tracks that didn’t quite make the grade from 2010 -2011.  Still, most have a sunny feel, and as it feels like winter is on it’s way out it seems a good excuse to share them.

SENDAI JAPAN – Various Artists

Do get over to the Force of Nature website to purchase this beautiful, fundraising EP.  The proceeds go to victims of the recent Tsunami that struck Japan.

From the Force of Nature website:

FON31-2 Sendai Japan is the first release in a series of release on Force of Nature designed to raise money to benefit the victims of the Earthquake/Tsunami that struck Japan on March 11th 2011. Curated by by Kate Turgoose, a regular contributor to Connexion Bizarre, with artwork provided by Kostas Katsikas (better known as Subheim), and mastered by Dave Dando-Moore of Detritus, this compilation brings together a wide range of artists from across the world, all influenced in some way by the catastrophe that hit Japan earlier this year, and continues to effect the daily lives of those who live there.

With the lilting, glitchy, electronic sounds of Sleep Clinic (US), Temp0rary (UK) and Council Flats of Kingsbury (UK), dark IDM of Detritus (UK), dubstep of The Walton Hoax (BE) and Vocal Electronics from John Callaghan (UK), this release is a beautiful compilation that we hope will benefit Japan, in the way that Japan frequently benefits those who make electronic music; through Japan’s ever evolving culture that inspires so many.
This part of the Sendai Compilation series comes on 320k drm-free MP3, with further additions to the series coming soon. Stay tuned to the Sendai Japan Series page for details of new releases. All profits from the sale if this release will go directly to Give2Asia.

Failed Project

The idea was to do a made-for-tv horror kind of thing. I don’t want to add to the crap available on the internet, but just to give an idea…:

Some of it was shot in a Kingsbury cemetery that apparently dates back to Saxon times. Around abouts here.

A couple of songs, and some sounds made on a 70′s Lowrey Symphonic Holiday organ, complete with background hum / hiss.

A song about a death, and rebirth, or something…

The unfinished story

More organ sounds.

A view of the castle…

Dance Audit Hour

Dolcie, at night, goes running into the woods. But why?

The below track contains a field recording of a long neglected play area in Frient Country Park, around abouts here.
You never see anybody there, and it has an eeriness about it. Maybe this is where the likes of Dolcie plays.
On this particular night Dolcie had been detained and was under supervision, because the community was concerned of her disappearing until sunrise, and sleeping through the day.
Having returned from my field recording trip of Frient Park, I played back my results to the morose Dolcie. She slowly went into a trance, wandered over to the piano and began to play. She had never played before. The cat, as usual, was relaxing under the piano. The piano was recorded from the cat’s purrspective.

When relaxing at home, if the TV isn’t on, i like to listen to…

When asked for an insight into the daily lives of our close knit community I usually tell people that they should mind their own business if they know what’s good for them. They wouldn’t understand our ways, they’d think us strange. Like, as if there’s something wrong with having a beer for breakfast, watching daytime TV, or our naked dance around a fire under the full moon in the communal garden. But when asked by the good folk at Uncharted|Audio| what we might listen to during a social gathering I was happy to oblige in compiling this selection of songs.

Here’s a direct download link. And here’s the playlist:
1. Lena Horne – It Had Better Be Tonight
2. Marisa Gata Mansa – Ceu e Mar
3. The Creation – Through My Eyes
4. Krzysztof Komeda – Cul-de-sac
5. Martin Denny – Exotica
6. Alain Goraguer – Strip Tease
7. Stelvio Cipriani – Mary’s Theme
8. Dick Hyman / Mary Mayo – I’m Glad There Is You
9. Goblin – Death Dies
10. Françoise Hardy – Chanson D’o
11. Roberto Menescal – Depois da Queda (Tema de Flor)
12. Luis Bonfa – A Felicidade
13. Nara Leao – Cancao da Primavera
14. Miles Davis – Willie Nelson (Insert 1)
15. The High Llamas – Bach Ze
16. Fred Neil – December’s Dream
17. Ennio Morricone – Metti, Una Sera A Cena
18. Georgie Fame – Parker’s Mood
