“Whorls” is the third collaboration between myself and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek).
Out now on heavyweight vinyl via Low Point. Available direct from myself and via Bandcamp (soon).
Initial recordings by me of acoustic and electric guitars, acoustic synth guitar, avian guitar, bowed metals, bowed piano and vibrissa. These recordings were sent to Rutger for extra sounds, editing and mixing.
A nice review from Frand de Waard in Vital weekly. http://www.vitalweekly.net/977.html “..an excellent record. It’s highly varied, short and to the point, great small compositions, lots of different approaches and yet, it all makes sense as simply an excellent record. One of the best collaborative records I heard from Machinefabriek and no doubt thanks to a mighty varied input from Catlin.”
First Overtone Ensemble show for the year.
Sunday April 26 4-7 pm.
Strange Neighbour Gallery, 395 Gore Street, Fitzroy, 3065.
I’m currently working on some recordings with Dutch musician Machinefabriek.
This will be our third album together.. I’ve recorded quite a bit of bowed piano as well as some Vibrissa and bowed acoustic guitar. Next up will be some recordings of my new acoustic synthesiser guitar..looking forward to that!
I finished the mixing the album recordings last month. Byron Scullin has just completed the mastering at Moose Mastering in Richmond. Can’t wait to see and hear these in vinyl form. (No label yet.)
