David Cross was the violinist with the King Crimson band which created ‘Larks’ Tongues in Aspic’ and Andrew Keeling is a contemporary composer and flautist. The two musicians have collaborated on a series of improvisations, which has evolved into this beautiful collection of electric violin and flute duets, ‘English Sun’. There is a common heritage at work here that goes far deeper than its clear classical and rock components. This is new music by anybody’s standard. 'English Sun' was released by David's Noisy Records company under the 'Electric Chamber Music' label in 2009.
released January 6, 2009
All tracks composed and performed by David Cross and Andrew Keeling
I knew and liked their Last Tribe album and when I read about this Bartok thing, I thought, well, that sounds interesting and put it on my wishlist. When I finally got it now, I was amazed how much I liked it on first listening. Bartok done the Dialeto way - works very well for me, indeed! Glad, that I got this one... Carsten Pieper
