I'm halfway through a recording project with legendary raconteur and jazz pianist Art Terry. Since moving here from his native Los Angeles in the early 90s, Art Terry has established himself as one of London’s 'characters'. We're recording a few songs in the wonderful Gizzard Studios in Hackney, which is full of analogue delights. The line up is also pretty unusual - band, plus clarinet, trombone, flute and two violas - so it should be quite an interesting album once it's finished!
Today I've been with the Fable Quartet, recording a live track and video with indie rockers The Heartbreaks. We were in Miloco studios in Battersea, which was built in an old swimming pool.
I'm about to go to soundcheck for a gig with Aphex Twin and the Heritage Orchestra at the Barbican tonight. Initial glances at the score suggest that this is going to be an interesting evening!
I've just had a rocking three days with SBTRKT, arranging some string parts and performing as a badger. Yes, really.. The performers all wear masks and I was delighted to be included in this.
