Solstice + Ebony Buckle concert, Poppodium Boerderij, Zoetermeer
Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd
met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3
weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten
wachten. We doen ons best om alles zo goed en snel mogelijk te
regelen, maar het blijft lastig...
|Electronic/ New Age /Synthipop
|Electronic music with a.o. Berlin School elements.
This is a long piece that spins between many moods
from the deepest drifts to up-tempo beats. The
pandemic and its greater and lesser lockdowns
(whether mandated or just sensible) haven`t been
great for us. As an improvising band we thrive off
playing together in the same space. Worse, as a
lazy improvising band we tend to do things when we
have a pressing deadline to deal with. which
generally means a concert to rehearse for. With
nobody taking the risk of setting up gigs likely
to be cancelled, not to mention the dreaded B word
messing up any EU opportunities everything dried
Except... we had been planning on coming over to
the US to play at the Gatherings. We had to cancel
that early on as we couldn`t really risk paying
for flights we might have had to abandon (and
sadly we were right). But we decided to create
something to play on Stars End on the night we
would have been there. This is the music we made.
It`s a lockdown recording, made by passing files
around between us and building it up. You can hear
our individual musical personalities in various
sections depending on who originated them; we`ve
also tried to play together - shifted in time and
space - to make it more of a band effort.
The original concept was to lead on it being a
Halloween broadcast, with lots of spooky darkness.
In the end little of this survived and it ending
up touching all kind of musical bases. Definitely
airsculpture, but also something a bit different.
