The Live Vault: Archive Recordings

I made a Bandcamp page to house some live recordings that I’m on. I think I’ll use it eventually as a place to put recordings of my gigs (for when it’s my music), and any bands that I’m in that do original music and don’t mind putting up recordings of live stuff such as this one…

Have a listen; and, if you like, you can download it for free.

It’s a recording of a gig with with Asaf Sirkis’s Inner Noise trio from the Wheatsheaf, Oxford on 24/04/08. Normally, Steve Lodder plays Church Organ with this group but on this date Kit Downes is playing.

Top man Paul Pirongs recorded it on a little Sony hand-held machine. I think he must’ve recorded the rehearsal before the gig too which accounts for the multiple versions of Hymn and Miniature some of which feature us fiddling around, trying things out. I thought I might as well add that in too. The order of the tunes, I’m sure, is totally mixed up here so if anyone knows what got played when, let me know :)

We also played three standards but I’m opting to leave them off for the time being. Someone took a video of this one though (thanks, whomever you are!) ¬†Here it is:

We’ve released three CDs too.
