A pre tour rehearsal recording made in an attempt to refine and hone my live set up in advance of a USA/Europe tour with Antony Milton which kicked off about 3 weeks after this session. Interestingly, neither this recording or the tracks recorded around the same time that ended up on Folksongs And Blackness sound much like what I eventually ended up creating live in front of an audience. There are similarities naturally, given the source instrumentation is identical, but the methodology changes depending on the environment.
Quite pleased with this one as a snapshot of the creative process in action.
