"… In 2013 I was asked by my friend Robert Pepper (Pas Musique) if i wanted to do an "unplugged " album. I was intrigued by the idea and agreed. I thought of ways of constructing pieces that did not involve any "processing". I wanted to make something that was essentially acoustic recordings but which were composed and arranged to give some depth and intricacy to them. I started recording some of my many acoustic instruments on a portable stereo digital recorder (A Tascam DR­05..for those interested in such things). The recorder has built in microphones , so I just used those. Sometimes I placed the recorder inside a large Bodhran to get natural reverb reflections. I listened back to the things I had carefully recorded. i listened to them again…they were ok..but something was missing… I added some reverb, delay ..back masking and ….it suddenly sounded fab to me… This album is part acoustic and part processed ..all the recorded parts are live..one take. The treatments and processing are as much a part of composition as are the instruments and the recordings…In a way I failed to make an unplugged album but I did make something which was outside of my usual work process and for that i am thankful. To simply repeat the same processes over and over seems very dull to me. Viva la Difference !”

Acoustic Instruments used:
Trumpet, Pocket Trumpet, Bodhran, Banjo, Pungi,Shehnai, Indian flute, Chinese flute, Irish tin whistle, hand bells, cello, accordion, guitar (Hofner Congress 1958), one string slide guitar (nineboys wedge), Ukelele, Kan (Tai bamboo harmonica), mouth harps, percussion, voice…”

Big Brother On Acid | Other from New York, NY S/T (ALRN055)

"… The beat is constant and yet always changing, pummelling each frequency receptor in turn as the equalisation is winched up and down; denting my cognitive capacity until my thoughts take place in a binary slither between the hallucinatory flashbacks and circuit boards. ON: I embody the noise. OFF: I black out…"
