Astempola 'The Return of the Glock' Album. (Physical Copy).
The Compositions for the Astempola project started as a suite written for tenor saxophone, laptop, glockenspiel and double bass. After a debut performance in July 2011, I have now Co-Produced the first full album with Jim Parris in my studio and the plan is for more compositions and shows including video artwork installations. "I am fascinated by the world of film music, electro-acoustic music, jazz, classical and world music. Improvisation is a key element in my Astempola compositions. It is developed in conjunction with fixed notated scoring techniques. The aim of these compositions is to veer off the predictability of a rigid and repetitive beat pulse and to use electronic music in a very humanly process; a process that in essence is imperfect and therefore forever changing."
