Mark Fell, a musician & friend I hold in the highest regard, had the idea to form a duo project wherein Mark's software-based formal & event-generation engines would "power" the Hybrid Digital / Analogue modular setup on which I've been performing over the past decade. Hinging on Mark's "Multistability" methodologies, the results wrap the precise, often audio-rate timings & poly-rhythmic patterns around an evolving set of synthesizer patches that slyly reference, yet deviate heavily from the timbral & grid-based lexicons of dance music.
We went from a day spent rehearsing ideas in Mark's Rotherham studio to performing the very next day at the LUFF festival in Lausanne, Switzerland. Over a half-dozen concerts given around the world, these systems grew in complexity and scope until we were both happy enough with the results to begin compiling a document for release, forthcoming for Editions Mego. Future performances & realizations are very much a possibility & can be arranged via our joint agent, Chloe, at Annex Agency in Manchester.
