Works in Progress Vol. 10

by Al Swainger's Pointless Beauty

subscriber exclusive
Communion I 38:39


One from the archives this month. A work in progress only in the sense that it documents part of my progression as a free improvisor. Recorded in front of a live audience one monday lunchtime I enjoy the interaction of the trio meeting for the first time. The audio is taken from video cameras set up around the church and presents a document of a concert in raw form.

Recorded live at St Stephens Church, Bristol 13/07/17


releases July 2, 2024
