Follow Emilie and I as we co-compose a new piece together. Like in every etm episode we only use one instrument; for this episode we're using piano, getting into it's inards and playing with lots of extended techniques and layering. As part of the rules we can manipulate the recordings electronically but we only have an afternoon to finish the music.
I should say a special thank you to the composer Danny Mulhern for generously allowing us into his studio to use his piano and record the music there.
This is the second part of excuse the mess podcast. An opportunity to hear how each guest operates when in music making mode. Don't miss the first part of which is more a of a general ramble chat all about their careers and projects.
This is the final episode of series one. Make sure you go and check out the one's preceeding it if you haven't already. Those are: Manu Delago, Laura Jurd, Emily Hall, Robert Ames, Mark Lockheart, Douglas Dare and Mira Calix.
Thanks for listening!
