HARMONICS OF THE NIGHT
Limited to 500 copies Side A/B is solid red vinyl and side C/D is solid green vinyl. Stand out tracks: æA Certain StrangenessÆ, ÆHarmonics of the NightÆ and æCity of CrocodilesÆ. The music for Harmonics of the Night came from a real-life situation, which was the occasion of a retrospective exhibition of my photography at the Pavillon Populaire in Montpellier. I was able to visit the museum in advance of the opening and decided this time (instead of the usual unsuitable music being played by the whatever gallery!) that I must make a music installation to accompany the photography on the wall, a piece that could be looped and thus provide a continual musical counterpoint to the visual. I made a twenty-minute single guitar improvisation, A Certain Strangeness - This piece put a certain approach in my in my head and pointed me in the direction of eleven more tracks. These pieces which vary from minimalist approaches to African influenced dance pieces and are what I consider the sonic parallels to the photography. The vinyl version of æA Certain StrangenessÆ is 19:20 whereas the CD version is 11:00.
