New Releases

I'm very happy to be part of two new releases, the first being a new solo disc by my close friend Sarah Hughes, published by the new label Suppedaneum.

As it says on the site:

Sarah Hughes’ «Accidents of Matter or of Space» is a limited edition of 100 archival CD-R’s mounted on an 11×14 letterpress score produced by Milkfed Press in Alameda, California. A complementary informational sheet includes credits, track list, and an essay by Dominic Lash. This release brings together a solo zither improvisation recorded in a disused transmission station in mid-Wales with three realizations of the 2011 composition (can never exceed unity), performed by Rhodri Davies, Patrick Farmer, Jane Dickson, Neil Davidson, and Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga.

Just released on the Another Timbre label is a performance, from 2012s Audiograft Festival, of John Cage's Cartridge Music. The photo above was taken by Stephen Cornford as we rehearsed the piece during December 2011. It's performed by Stephen Cornford, Robert Curgenven, Ferran Fages, Patrick Farmer, Daniel Jones, Alfredo Costa Monteiro & Lee Patterson.
