Alan's notes...

Culled from two very different sessions, over two months apart, and some different equipment in use, expect the unexpected with X-Ray! I put the key elements together as conceived works or in jig-saw fashion, segueing randomly diverse moods one after the other. Sometimes mixed, sometimes jarring, or invisible. The transitions weld together picture music like stories, with melancholy, anger, fear and pure emotion. From the beautiful to the totally bizarre. What started as 30+ chosen fragments and mixes, became 22 pieces, pieced together as the 8 works on this 2CD set.

Those in the know will know where the track titles come from!
