Sample The Album:

Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"The 8 pieces of music on this CD are a combination of written pieces and free improvisation. "ARP" Is a piece inspired by artist Jean Arp, who for the artwork above, threw pieces of paper into the air and let them drop randomly.

The music for "ARP" was obtained by choosing random playing cards and assigning their values into musical parameters such as pitch, duration and intensity. These were then translated into a spacetime style notational score as seen her from another score for the trio Orion, a piece with prerecorded electronics sound.

"Sunrise Raga" is dedicated to John Mayer, the Indian Jazz/classical violinist and composer who led Indo Jazz Fusions from the 60s till 2000. This was one of and still is the most successful of its type blending the music of India with Western Jazz.

"Unlimited" (from which this group takes its name) is a piece by Karlheinz Stockhausen from Aus Den Seien Tagen (from the seven days) 1968 and is intuitive music, in text form. Unlimited Play a sound with the certainty you have an infinite amount of time and space."-FMR

Since 2009, Chris has been exploring and developing a new area of improvisations and compositions with Susie Hodder-Williams, inspired by the natural history of Dartmoor. The Mariner's Way CD is the first result of this fruitful partnership which was launched at the Greenaway Barn Gallery as part of the Devon Open Studios. In 2010, he set up a performance series, in Devon, called Music on the Edge which has found its first home in the engaging Long Room, Drewsteignton."
