Firstly, Vernon Lott and Jennifer Anderson (makers of the film ‘Confluence’, for which my score is available from Erased Tapes) have a new film out called ‘#monalisa’. This film is an 11-hour slow motion journey through the Louvre. For me this film is poignant and eerie in how much it shows us we’re glued to our technological devices. David Allred and I created 11 hours (!!) of music to soundtrack the film. A 40-minute distillation of this soundtrack will be released as a standalone album later in the year (more details on that soon enough), but for now you are invited to dive into the film itself.
Secondly, today begins an auction for a super duper limited 7” lathe cut record. All proceeds from the auction will go directly to Servant Jazz Quarters — a small, independent music venue in London — with one track from me on one side, and a track from my dear friend Daniel O’Sullivan on the other side. Both tracks include spoken text by myself and Daniel, in tribute to our independent venues and live music culture. These two tracks are ONLY available on these five records, and by supporting the auction, you’ll be helping keep a lovely small venue alive. Make a bid!
