I'm so glad to be on this new vinyl LP by brilliant young cellist Alec Livaditis (and with our good friend, the always inventive and lyrical John Fernandes). The press release says it well:
"Kye is proud to announce the release of Clear and Cloud, the debut LP by Alec Livaditis. Recorded over the summer of 2015, Clear and Cloud showcases Alec's unique vision for extended cello technique across two varying settings. Side A's 'Clear and Cloud' presents Livaditis (cello, objects) and Killick Hinds (Vo-96 guitar) live in an extraneous sound environment, where music and conversation seek to undermine each other in a morose and thrilling tussle, whereas Side B's 'Through The Open Window' finds Livaditis alongside John Kiran Fernandes (clarinets, violin) in a discrete collage of live/studio improvisations that test the elasticity of form and structure. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs, Clear and Cloud arrives in a full color Lee Turner designed sleeve, in an edition of 400 copies."
