Album Description

Most of the pieces here are quite concise, some almost miniatures, others using overdubbing to create a denser, more “orchestral” sound. The music moves between highly structured and freer playing but is always strong on form and direct emotional appeal, whether driving or more contemplative. And the musicians often swap roles within pieces, exploiting the full range of expression for this unusual combination of instruments.
