Track Name: Miracle/Inevitable (with Ruth Goller)
Miracle/Inevitable is from the London Bass Guitar Show 2015, where I was joined by one of my favourite bassists in the world, Ruth Goller - I'd been wanting to play with Ruth for ages. As you'll hear, she brings a completely different kind of energy to our improv, which pulled me in new directions. Looking forward to playing more soon! There's a bit at the end of the tune where it sounds like it's going to explode... our basses massively overloaded the input on the recording, and I thought about filtering it out, but that brokenness actually works quite well :)
Track Name: Curiosity
Curiosity is from the week after the london show, at the Moffat Bass Bash - it was my opening improvisation, and is the first public outing for a fun thing I'm experimenting with that's sort of improvised counterpoint - trying to get two lines overlapping in interesting ways... More of this coming v. soon :)
