The first meeting of Jason Kahn and Phil Julian, both performing on analogue modular synthesiser, intended to be recorded as material for studio sound compositions, but which was so compelling as improvised work that they chose to release the album as recorded.

Kahn, Jason / Phil Julian

Kahn, Jason / Phil Julian: Valentines (Confront)

Label: Confront    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Valentines documents the first duo meeting between Kahn and Julian, recorded during Kahn's tour of the UK in 2012.

The initial idea was to meet and hopefully generate audio material that could then be used later as the basis for a composition. It seemed apparent that the three improvised pieces that makes up Valentines stood up well on their own merits without the need for further embellishment.

The session was recorded by John Macedo, who also conducted an interview with the pair about their approaches to recording and performing. A link to this is included on a card insert with the release."-Confront
