GROOVESCAPES & NOISES (2018) album NOTES
On this album I extensively use a Roland Handsonic HPD 20 digital hand percussion controller, which is a hand played electronic “bongo type” instrument. That’s why I called the album “groovescapes” and “noises”, associated with the HPD 20. But I also had help from the German “Amsel” (blackbird), who is lending its amazing voice on 2 songs, “Blackbirds Whistle” and “Solitary Company”.
The songs are mostly composed but with some improvised solos in it (Jembrana, Alexandria, Dreamtime)
