Vanishing Point Volume 1

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Pressed compact disc.

    Bandcamp would have us describe the product in exquisite detail here. But it's hard, CDs all look the same. I'd like to say that the jewel case was hand made by artisan jewel case makers but I'm pretty sure it was churned out of a Chinese jewel case factory like everybody else. So it goes.

    But it's professionally done and the artwork is nice.

about

Vanishing Point was recorded as we traveled around the east coast of the United States in the fall of 2011, taking in various radio stations and concerts. These visits are a fantastically intense time for us; because the music is completely improvised it is also amazingly productive with hours of music recorded in a short time.

This album includes long extracts from the 1000 Pulses concert (NJ) and radio broadcasts on Secret Music (WVXR NY) and Star's End (WXPN PA). The music is varied, atmospheric, switching from dreamy ambiences to classic Berlin School - while avoiding the cliches of that genre. Or most of them; we seem to have been in a heavy mellotron mood!

The missing piece of the puzzle is the Gatherings concert that was the focus of the visit. Anyone who was there will wonder why this astounding show is missing. Well the clue is in the title; volume 2 will be released later in the year as a 2CD set and download and will present the concert in its entirety.

That'll do. I'm British and self promotion makes me tired. I need a cup of coffee after those superlatives.

Track two ("Boardwalking") can't be previewed but will appear in your download. The album is crammed with almost 80 minutes of unique music.
