FAKE HUMANS album nearly done

In AUTOMAAT related news, I have been spending some time this year gigging and recording with esteemed collaborator Colin Fisher in our duo improv band FAKE HUMANS. Free spirited demo recordings led quickly (somehow) to a LP offer from Portuguese label SHHPUMA. Further recordings were made and much work and discussion done and now we are nearly finished out first album.

Side one is an extended three part suite of (often) beautiful diatonic improvisation with overdubs. Colin plays guzheng, drums, sax and flutes. I play taishogoto bass, and keyboards. Side two is more of a collage of disparate elements including multi-tracked percussion, tape-speed manipulated strings, gongs and shredding. The music was recorded at Colin's by me, using a combination of Colin's and my technology tape and computer, tube and transistor.

The budget was $0 and we came in on the mark. The only thing we needed was time and opportunity.

We have been performing together in this formation for a few years now but have been keeping an unusually low profile for a free-jazz improvisational duo.

The album will come out some time in the fall/winter, depending on when we send them the tunes and pressing delays etc.. The cover art is being designed by SHHPUMA and we hope it looks good. We'll tell you all when it is finished.
