Album Notes
Music For Stairlifts was a sort of accident..

The brief was simple - make 'ambienty' music using only a nylon strung guitar, a 12/6 double neck electro-acoustic guitar, a 6-string fretless bass, Rhodes piano, and two voices. Each piece started with an idea on an instrument, which was jostled about to make a skeleton arrangement. All the other parts were then improvised to make a piece, which was finally named depending on the atmosphere it seemed to evoke. Probably.

The hope was to capture an 'almost live,' spontaneous feel to the performances - as much as one bloke playing everything ever could..

Presented here is a companion to Music for Stairlifts (Vol 1), a continuation of the journey - perhaps lighter, perhaps less mysterious (perhaps moreso) than its sibling.. only the listener can fathom.
