about

Part of a duo album that Trip and I have talked about doing for years (I talk to pretty much every musician I like about doing duo records... sometimes they actually happen)

We actually recorded TWO different projects - this one was done 'my way', with all the freewheeling improv goodness that that entails. One was done Trip's way, with commensurate amounts of organisation, wikkid programming, structure and actual songs!

The comparison between the two gives a good indication of what we do, and how we inspire each other to new musical destinations

lyrics

Growing Up And Moving On

This was the first thing we recorded. It is, I think the most edited too... Perhaps.

Nerves? Expectations?

We met 11 years ago. We wouldn’t have played like this then. We were young. Unformed. A different world.

We’ve moved on, up, out, through... Sometimes in parallel, sometimes divergent, always with a bass in hand.

It’s a slow build, the underlying loop changes not. The emotions evolve. We’re exploring, tentatively (it’s the first thing we played, remember?) Satisfied as it unfolds.

It’s good. Let’s play more.

from Slow Food, released September 10, 2010
Steve Lawson: Fretless bass, looping and processing
Trip Wamsley: a massive array of bass-type things, some samples, cleverness.

The music was 'spontaneously composed', then edited mixed and mastered by Steve Lawson. Look out for a companion album of tracks produced by Trip v. soon!
