Vinylselection is delighted to be working with the virtuoso flautist and inventor and primary performer of the hyperbass flute Roberto Fabbriciani!
I've recently had a spell of playing in Poland with pianist friend, Wojtek Konikiewicz; then back in the UK with PINSKI ZOO: close friends and musicians whom I admire. Happily, we don't have to talk too much about the music we make, just get on with the way we feel as a measure of how it's working. Of course, that is the intention, but often it's the mundane and time consuming practicalities of setting up the gig, driving, loading gear etc etc that can seem to overtake and overbake the experience. But it's when the playing goes well and we all zone in at the same time that, miraculously, there is a refreshment that blows away the three hours sleep problems.
I composed my soundscape work Stations of the Clyde in the early months of 2013 for the Stations of the Green exhibition curated by the editors of The Drouth - Johnny Rodger and Mitch Miller, which focused upon a (now) demolished public art work by Turner Prize-winning Glasgow School of Art alumnus Douglas Gordon entitled Proof, which was sited at the derelict remains of Glasgow Green Station. The exhibition ran at the New Glasgow Society 1307 Argyle St. Glasgow, 26th April - 17th May 2013
It took a while to understand how in the blink of an eye everything, yet nothing, has changed since I first played there in 1985. The Warsaw gigs at Chwila and Bal Bar at one time were lovely, and a mixture of back-in-time with a bit of vegan and neon on the side.Intensity and unpredictability. But maybe that is what all music creates?
A tribute to the memory of the late Gavin Costello, Gavin always dreamed of a career in music but tragically his life was cut short at an early age.
