AURICLE / COSMIC EGG - new releases
See the downloads page for lots of Bandcamp news!
TRIAX - HIDDEN PLANET (AMCDR 315/6) 2xCDR documenting a July 2022 session, the first since lockdown, and an extraordinarily creative one containing just four big pieces, the music just flowed out of us as if by magic. Great when that happens, and also great when it's this good.
APPROACHING INFINITY - SUBSTRATUM (AMCDR 314) 4th album, culled from two sets at Quadelectronic events and an extended trek at Nottingham's "Church Of Sound", this is possibly Approaching Infinity's most out-there and spacious adventure yet.
TRIAX - MORPHOLOGY (Auricle AMCDR 313) CDR £8.00 - The first new Triax in over two years, this one tends to feature Dave as the soloist on either flute or hurdy gurdy, with Alan contributing most of the synth & keyboard work, with Steve adding all the other unidentifiable elements. Alan's use of the virtual sampler also strongly features, not least in the use of Mellotron samples in "Cortical Mitocondria". So, prepare for a very different Triax!
