For this album I’ve tried a slightly different way of working than before. I’ve always struggled to put together solo albums, I find live collaboration such as I do with Helicopter Quartet much easier - maybe because I’m reacting to someone other than myself. Or maybe it’s just the difficulty of getting started from nothing.

So, here I’ve taken the way I work with duos and tried to apply it to myself. I laid down a single, long-ish, track on one instrument and then went back to fill out the arrangement with other instruments. Often this meant cutting bits out of the original ‘bootstrap’ part, but that’s fine. So you will find that there is usually a dominant instrument on each track - but not always, sometimes quite a lot got cut.

To be quite honest, I’m not 100% sure how successful this has been, but I have learned a lot while doing it, often about myself and the things I “always seem to do” when left unattended. The most immediately obvious was that I originally ended up with three tracks that were all exactly 7’30” long!

The bootstrap instruments were:

No more Snow - Cantini Earphonic violin with SY-1000 & looper
Aftersight - Yamaha Montage synthesiser
Perception - ESP 7 string baritone guitar
Never Not Now - Bridge Lyra octave violin
Unstuck - PRS Fiore guitar with Strymon Big Sky reverb
