JG/BC: Porta Lucis
As a springtime gift, here's the new album from Jamie Grimes (of Vircolac and Drainland) and myself, available here at Bandcamp for free download (which seems fitting for this most understated and low-key of all the musical projects I am involved in).
A collection of expansive and meditative instrumentals, by turns evoking tranquillity or the elements (the more intense moments redolent of various weather conditions).
All songs improvised and recorded live, with no rehearsals and no overdubs.

Piece on a friend and collaborator of mine - Martin A. Egan - who died at the end of last year, to which I contribute some thoughts and reminiscences, is now online here at The Thin Air. It also includes the first song of the album I did with him to be made available to hear publicly for the first time.

Nurse With Wound for this release are Steven Stapleton and myself: "MUSIQUE POUR FAITS DIVERS : A PIECE OF THE SKY IS MISSING" is a new fifteen minute piece on 3" CD with book (containing texts [in French] by Charles-Louis Philippe), based on my reworking - rather more radical than a standard remix - of an older NWW piece with new material Stapleton and I collaborated on worked into it. Tranquil, narcotic and nocturnal music. Release date: 4 February 2016. Label: Lenka Lente.
