Our 20th album and our 28th CD disc - with 6 doubles and one triple. Returning now to the Studio, to create 2 multi-layered confections of our more usual complexity. At the heart of it, performing live isn't enough, we want to create new textural possibilities and that means hours at the desk, cutting, pasting and listening, listening, listening, until the music emerges. One piece, 'Vingt', is for our beloved Pure Cello. The other, unusually for us, is a solo piece for percussion, 'Tom - Tom'. Solo, almost, in that it has the ghost trace of a Cello part in the background. It is another variation on what a Cello piece can be - where the accompaniment is vastly the greater part of what you hear - even to the extent of my nominating it as a solo piece [by giving it one of my Rh catalogue numbers - Rh 450].
