We're not camping as Beccles is only 40 minutes drive away and we prefer to be home in time for tea, usually a delicious red lentil daal and a glass of red wine, what could be better?
That's Saturday 16th June.
On Sunday there is Woodbridge Regatta and a psychedelic folk band, Artwork, are booked to play in the afternoon at Ferry Quay Caravan Cafe'. I am doing a Techno Brunch from 11am till noon and just working out whether to use Artwork's P.A. and gazebo. No-one yet knows whether things have been organised to this level - like is there a power supply, P.A. and gazebo? Basic elements of doing a performance. Of course no mention of being paid, I suppose I'll be offered a "free" hog roast, great, success at last! (unless I'm feelin' the veggy techno vibes strong that day!)
But hey, I'll almost certainly get a cup of coffee, and this is being a musician. It'll look good on Facebook so that's worth a thousand pounds? :-)
My new album, BEOWULF came out last Friday. Track 6, Sun Mor, is a delicious dive into Ambient music, recorded at 11am one calm warm Sunday morning, a harmonic drone with Moog parts surging in and then a soft powerful bass arriving to propel it forward.
Track 9, Tefi, is the last one and points toward a new Techno confidence. Mainly an 808 type beat with minimal harmonic content entering as a nod to my Ambient Techno basis.
Maybe my next tracks will be deeper into the Techno exploration, more rhythm based, even a 15 minute drum machine piece with no chord structure, just the meter and swing of a drum machine, and the confidence to perform that alone.
