Water Wheel - 27/7/20


This is my contribution to Audio Obscura's '20x20 Project' where every twenty days a new micro-album of twenty tracks - each of which are twenty seconds long - is released.

Water Wheel consists of fragments from improvisations on a variety of Western fretless zithers. I've been an improviser for years but have always considered that practice more suitable for live performance rather than a recorded album. I also usually improvise with others rather than by myself. These factors - as well as the unique theme and the limitations it imposes - made this project quite an interesting experiment.

Thank you Neil (https://audioobscura.bandcamp.com/) for inviting me to participate, and David (dbarrington.com) for the gorgeous artwork.
