Album Notes
“My first listen, and I’m already enchanted! Simple but intimate electronic backgrounds woven by chris, against which play a variety of folks and instruments… I was most impressed with the lead-in tune, in which Stephen Crowe plays his flugelhorn against a slow-moving suspension in the back! Highly recommended…” Improvijazzation Nation #6 Fall 1992

“[Paintings] is really incredible, especially the contrabass piece. I will be playing the entire cassette on next Monday evening’s program. I’m sure that the listeners will like this one every bit as much as they have enjoyed your previous releases!” Ben Kettlewell WOMR

With this set of pieces, I set out to juxtapose composition with improvisation, and electronic with acoustic. Each piece, or each painting, has in the foreground a solo acoustic instrumental improvisation, on a background of (pre)composed electronics.

Thanks to Stephen, Douglas, Steve, Bernard, and Jurgen for wonderful performances!

The backgrounds are available ( as separate downloads for musicians who want to 'paint' on them -- doesn't matter which instrument paints on which background.
