out of stock

his third album is a uniquely composed masterpiece that blends his own superlative talents as a pianist with electronic textures and a dynamic rhythm section.

the record is a sonic exploration of the human mind, technology and our postmodern age and sees him hone his approach by incorporating a number of electronic sounds to add to his already considerable acoustic pallet: analogue synthesisers, Hammond organ, self-hacked children’s toys found in charity shops and many more. Long-time collaborator Tom McCredie augments his formidable double bass playing with the addition of electric guitar to powerful effect. All the components are bound together by the inimitable drumming of Corrie Dick. if you like the bad plus, phronesis or trichotomy, you will love this.
