In parallel to our collaborative efforts, we have, over the last year or so, been developing and refining more conventional modes of improvising (namely playing in the same space and time). “Galactic Anatomy” is FVT’s first collection of recordings featuring the two of us playing alone. We have cautiously defined the genre as “techneurotic jazz”. The main intrigue/challenge from the outset has been to convincingly integrate improvised performance on traditional acoustic instruments (piano, electric guitar, trumpet) with digital electronic devices (laptop, samplers, analogue modelling).
