sample the album:
"This solo bass album is a distillation of my language, the articulation of my voice on my instrument. It is free improvised music, focused on energy and the moment. This project incorporates electro-acoustic sounds and noises, groovy rhythmical games and sporadic forays into melody. There are no overdubs. My Lexicon machine is an inseparable companion, allowing me to freely experiment with electronic delays ranging from 0.5 second to 30 seconds.
Track 1 and 3 were recorded live in Jerusalem on June 28 2006 with dancer Julyen Hamilton, friend and "artiste toutes categories". More attentive ears may notice Julyen's brief vocalizing at the beginning of the last episode of track 2.This 19 minute performance was later edited in the studio and divided into two nine minutes segments.
On track 1, my bass tuning (G, D, A and E flat) precipitates a spontaneous interaction with the 5 note theme from the Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".
Track 2 is composed of 18 shorter episodes, ranging from 40 seconds to two and a half minutes, all selected excerpts from previously recorded projects (August 2005 to August 2006). These events were cut and paste in the studio .Track 3 begins with the identical episode we hear at the end of track 1."-JC Jones, Kadima
