ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The ten pieces on this album were recorded during five sessions in early 2012. They were improvised spontaneously and are presented here, (with minimal edits, and only a few seconds of overdubs) as we played them on the day. One of us would begin with a simple idea, to which the other would respond. This would Initiate a musical dialogue, that would unfold in its own way, into a unique musical ‘story’.

Working like this has proved to be immensely worthwhile for us, as it offers some significant advantages over a more composed approach. The challenge of having to continually create the music, whilst performing, ensures that we remain open, spontaneous, and alert to the moment. We find ourselves drawing intuitively upon the musical influences, and memories that we have both accumulated, over a lifetime of listening, performing, and teaching.

It is often only when listening back to what we have recorded, that we can identify the many and varied influences at play. These might range from contemporary classical, jazz, rock, or pop, to folk, and world music, all of which have been, as it where, melted down and re-cast into something new.

Throughout this project, John and I have tried to avoid alienating people by playing ugly, or incoherent music. We have remained committed to creating pieces that are melodic, and emotionally engaging. Listening back to these recordings, we have repeatedly had the rewarding experience hearing ourselves ask- ‘did we actually just do that?’

Paul Costello September 2013
