Nearly ten years in the making, this instrumental album from Tom Slatter consists of eight pieces of music originally written for very different instrumental combinations –including string quartet and solo harp – rearranged for rock instrumentation.
Largely performed by Tom himself with Alun Vaughan adding his talents on bass guitar, and Chrissie Caulfield on violin. Tom has realized his vision of layered, complex but tuneful noise, fitting neatly into the BEM instrumental zone also occupied by the likes of The Fierce And The Dead, The Brackish and The Bob Lazar Story.
FFO: King Crimson, Gentle Giant, The Fierce And The Dead, avant-garde instrumental.
Tracklist: 1. A Scattering, 2. Crookedness, 3. Grey Malkin, 4. Kettle and Cauldron, 5. Firecracker, 6. Embers, 7. Clamour, 8. They Broadcast My Birthday On A Numbers Station
