We arrived in Brixton from far away points, into a nice spacious studio, bringing a range of qualities, instruments, preferences and negotiable sounds, and, of course, our personalities. The music went beyond the sum of the parts - that is the magic we expect to make. It includes dimensions of space, suggestions, the definite tense, long, sharp integration, fantasy, dialogue, qualities of closeness and distance, cool and hot.
Now as a listener, as much as I try to test its validity for a CD with multiple hearings, I am drawn into it - what is observed, what is engaged in, what are the sounds, what is the spirit behind the sounds.
