Album Notes
Peter Whitehead
Norman Rutherford
Andrew Kushin

Improvised instrumental music with strains of jazz,
classical and various brands of urban rock and world folk music. Rough
at the edges but with occasional finely polished surfaces. A sense of
humour exists alongside the more serious, atmospheric compositions.
Scores for (as yet) unmade films.
Features cello, double bass, bass clarinet, spike fiddles, sampler,
tape loops, junk percussion and toys

This has been in my player since I bought it. I listen to it at least once a day. There's just something about the chemistry between instruments that keeps me transfixed. My only complaint is that there isn't more of it. Great work!

Undeniably creative, three accomplished string players collaborate with skills &
This recording is a good bet for the future of modern music. Upon hearing this music one is reminded that acoustic/electro music is undoubtably a gift from the heavens. Many have tried but only a few succeed. Honest, creative, passionate, and deeply original Closer To Carbon is a welcome addition to any true music fanatics collection...Don't sleep on this one
